If when you turn 65 you're still working and have health insurance from your employer or through your spouse's employer, Medicare may permit you to postpone, without penalty, the date when you have to enroll.

Generally speaking, that exception period ends when you stop working and no longer have job-based health care coverage. Discover great deals and saving through AARP membership. I'll soon be 66 years old, my full retirement age, and I plan to apply for my retirement benefits.
