One of the most important things about winning your Social Security Disability case is that you become eligible for Medicare.

Medicare is very important because you will have access to medical care for the rest of your life.

However, you are not eligible immediately.

The rule is that approximately 30 months after your onset date your Medicare kicks in.

For example, if you applied for Social Security Disability in January 2009 and the Administrative Law Judge found you disabled with an onset date of March 2009 then you will be Medicare eligible in September 2011.
