If you are no longer able to work, you might be qualified for short term disability (“STD”) or long term disability (“LTD”) benefits through your employer. First check to see if you have any disability coverage through your employer.
If you are approved for disability insurance benefits (“DIB”), then you will be eligible for Medicare two years after that date you became entitled to benefits. Generally speaking that means the date that you became disabled plus 6 months.
