Planning for Medicare

Macalester’s HR team receives many Medicare related questions each year from folks who are thinking about retirement or close to the Medicare eligibility age.

Together you will create a roadmap to guide you on what steps to take and when to take them. This resource is available to spouses, domestic partners, family members, and friends.
