hackwriter responded:
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?

hackwriter replied to TotallyDisgusted1's response:

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

TotallyDisgusted1 replied to hackwriter's response:

Thank you.

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