Hi Irene,

Congratulations, I know what a relief it is to receive that first check. I didn't get a heads up letter either before getting that first check, but it did come shortly afterwards.

You'll be eligible for Medicare in 24 months.

Hi kim,

Just a qustion on your reply in reguards to medicare, once you receive ssid for two years your eligible no matter what age you are?

Thanks

Yes, once you have SSDI you become eligible for Medicare after 24 months regardless of age.

I would recommend direct deposit for your ssdi check, that way you need not worry about it being stolen.
