Today, it’s not uncommon for people who leave the workforce around Medicare eligibility age (age 65) to return to work later on. In fact, it’s estimated that by 2026 about 30 percent of people ages 65 through 75, and 11 percent of people 75 and older, will be working. Maybe it’s a passionate side-gig, a part-time job or you’ve gone back full-time. In any case, when you go back to work, what does that mean for your Medicare coverage?
The popular perception is that your 65th birthday marks the milestone in your life when you hang up your spurs, kick back, and reap the fruits of your labor as you enjoy sunsets from your porch.
