Some people just don't deal that well with deadlines. In fact, that describes more than a few people.
When we're facing large planning deadlines in our lives, we like to know about them. We like to have a little heads up and a little leeway to change our planning over time. That helps, especially if we are prone to procrastination or not the type to rush from day to day making snap decisions.
With that in mind, the age of 65 and a person's transitioning to senior status is kind of a rude awakening for a lot of us.
It might be great to get your AARP card and get 10% off a cup of coffee, but you have big life decisions to make, and if you're not prepared, that can be intimidating or annoying, or even make you lose some sleep at night.
As a newly minted American senior, it's on you to sign up for the government program known as Medicare that will help you to make sure you have access to medical services as you age.
The majority of Americans consider this a monumental piece of progress in American law and policy. Without Medicare, how would America's seniors navigate the insanely expensive markets of our healthcare sector?
But that means that after your 65th birthday, the clock starts ticking, and you need to figure out how to get adequately enrolled. That makes some people nervous – but you don’t really want to put this off or avoid it, because it’s a big deal.
It's an unfortunate reality that the medical system has become so complex and expensive that most seniors need supplemental coverage in addition to basic Medicare.
Medicare will usually end up paying the majority of balances, but the supplemental insurance will come in to cover deductibles and other exclusions.
This, however, makes many seniors groan when they figure out that they need to not only enroll for Medicare, but choose a supplemental plan, too. It just seems like an unfair amount of work.
