DAVID f, AI~IA Questions and Answers By Jimmy VanBevers Tyler District Manager Social Security Administration Q. After receiving disability benefits for several years, i returned to work in 1978 and the benefits stopped. Unfor- tunately, I have had to stop working because my condition has worsened. I know my disability payments will begin again without a waiting period - but what about Medicare? A.

If, during the first period of disability, a person did not complete the 24-month Medicare waiting period, any months for which he or she did receive disability benefits count toward meeting the 24-month requirement in the second period of disability. Q. I am a 66-year-old woman and have never worked under social security. I know I can't get social security, but can I get Medicare? A. You can sign up for medical In- surance.
