    Health Insurance Reminder

    Attaining Age 65 Once Retired? 

    If you are retired with health insurance through SHBP, you must enroll in only Medicare Part A and Part B three months prior to attaining age 65.  This should be completed through a local Social Security office.  You must contact SHBP/ADP (1-800-610-1863) 31 days prior to the first of the month in which you turn 65 to elect a Medicare Advantage Plan for anyone on your plan age 65 or on Medicare due to disability.  Failure to do so will result in increased monthly premiums.
