Information for Medicare Eligible Retirees

Medicare Advantage Plans - Why Apply

Once a retiree, spouse, or domestic partner reaches age 65, he/she may want to apply for Medicare Part A and B as soon as they become eligible because the healthcare provider becomes the secondary payer for them. He/she may also incur a penalty of 10% of premium per year for not signing up for Medicare, Part B when first eligible to do so.

Please submit a copy of your Medicare card to DCRB when you become Medicare eligible and receive your Medicare Card.

Members can submit their materials to DCRB Member Services in a variety of ways:

  • Fax us at (202) 566-5001
  • Send USPS mail to us at:

District of Columbia Retirement Board
Attn: Member Services Center (Open Enrollment)
900 7th Street NW, 2nd Floor
Washington, DC 20001
