Are you approaching age 65?
If you are then you are probably discovering a new popularity that would make Tom Cruise jealous!
The calls and mailings will begin about six months before your 65th birthday. By three months beforehand the interest in you will have reached an all-time high. Every day brings a new mailing, phone call, or even a personal visit from an insurance agent knocking on your door. Everyone wants to congratulate you on reaching this new milestone in your life, and "by the way, can I help you understand your insurance options?"
What's the deal here?
Well, it just so happens that there's a very good reason for why everyone is so interested in you right now: you are about to enter (what may be) a one-time open enrollment period where you cannot be turned down by an insurer for supplemental insurance coverage, to go along with your new Medicare coverage. If you are unhealthy, you'll likely find this attention beneficial, but if you are like most consumers, it will be annoying.
Take heart, as soon as you turn 65 you'll become anonymous again. The marketers will then turn on the next round of new Medicare enrollees.
