Get Ready For 65


Age 65 is a very important birthday milestone.


It means enrolling in Medicare --- plus it's the traditional age when people apply for Social Security, if you haven't already as early as age 62 (or will wait until 70).


Below are links to some major websites that offer helpful guidance about reaching age 65. Lots more sites exist; these are just a few.
