There must be a lot of money to be made helping people sign up for Medicare

I'll turn 65 in September, and there's hardly a day go by that I don't get a phone call or mail from someone trying to help me sign up for Medicare. I throw the mail in the trash, unread, and hang up on most callers. When I do talk to someone, I explain I still work and get insurance benefits through my employer. Today, I was even asked if I plan to retire in the next year. When I told he caller I planned to work another 5-6 years, he agreed it was probably a good idea and wished me well.

Is anyone else plagued with all this nonsense? All I can figure is that signing people up for Medicare must pay pretty darn good.

Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.

    AARP wanted me join up. I'm only 50 years old. I figure they're just huskters for the insurance companies, but I don't really know.

    I guess honest work is hard ta find.
    My thoughts are generally clear. My typing, not so much.

    For Medicare or AARP? From what I can tell, it's standard practice for AARP to try to enroll people in AARP as soon as they turn 50. You won't be eligible for Medicare until you turn 65.

    AARP is run by a bunch of liberal anti-gunners. I would not enroll in any of their programs on a bet, even if it was free!

    They're probably trying to sell Medicare suppliments, that's a big business, since Medicare is through SSI!

    For AARP.
    I think BigAl nailed it.

    I don't think it was free, but I can't remember.

    http://amac.us/ is the consevative answer to aarp. I don't have any affliation with them but the couple of people I talked to said it was about the same thing.
    Refusing to conform to the left wing mantra of political correctness by insisting on telling the truth does not make you a loud mouth.

    Ned standing there holding Cleans sweater while CPJ is curled up in the fetal position at Cleans feet should make a good Christmas card.
