Best Answer

After 24 months on Social Security Disability you are eligible for medicare.

Actually, at the age of 38 a member of my family who worked for nearly 20 years prior to a permanent medical disablity then became a recipient of Social Security Disability income and was on Medicare within a month. There was no 2 year wait. If a person has not worked enough hours and receives SSI (Supplemental Security Income) they qualify for Medicaid instead of Medicare.

Medicare is health insurance for people age 65 or older, under age 65 with certain disabilities, and any age with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant). Keep in mind Medicare is individual coverage, so your wife would need to qualify for Medicare by herself and cannot be added to your Medicare.
