Those under age 65 on disability will get benefits from Part A automatically and immediately if they have Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis. Otherwise, those on disability will begin Part A benefits after 24 months of collecting benefits. Those turning 65 that plan to obtain Social Security at 65, can have the effective dates for both coincide. Although, many collect Social Security before turning 65 and then begin Medicare at age 65.
The situation is personal to each individual. So, if you want to work after age 65, you could delay benefits depending on the size of your employer.
