My mom has health problems that she couldn't get awarded disability for, so with no job she had no insurance. She had to take early retirement at age 62 and along with that a big cut in her check! Money that was hers to start with-money she paid in and with barely enough to cover her bills, health insurance was not an option and because she started retirement early she isn't available for Medicare for two years after her check began. Three months after her check started she had a brain anuresym that almost killed her! She was in the hospital for 3 months and rehab to learn how to walk, talk even eat again for 6 more. Since she had no insurance the hospital saved her life but, the bare minimum afterwards (ex. her trache grew to her skin & stayed that way for a month, they only did the surgery to fix it after she qualified for charity)she would have been sent home with the trache and feeding tube in her with no insurance- she would have basically been sent home to die because her check wouldnt have even covered the liquid food that went in her feeding tube. If it would have been cancer she would have! We were able to get In house Medicaid started but only by signing over the deed to her home were we able to get her that. In house Medicaid is only good while their in the hospital or rehab center, once they come home, it's over! She has no other options and has to wait until Jan 2020 before she is able to get Medicare. So she has to use her little Soc Sec check to pay her bills, but also her Dr visits and all her medications.

To those who have to retire early as possible because of extenuating circumstances should be allowed to get Medicare right away just as if they are able to when they turn 65. People who retire deserve the same insurance that people are allowed to get right away if they are awarded Disability. Soc Sec is money we paid in to the gov't all those decades we worked, it's our money, why should we have to wait for insurance when we spend our whole lives giving our hard earned money to them only to be treated like a nobody when it's time for them to step up! PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION-LET OUR GOV'T KNOW WE DESERVE BETTER TREATMENT!!  THANK YOU SO MUCH.
