      Hi Dean, thanks for using our blog. If you’re enrolling in Medicare Part B during a Special Enrollment Period, you will need to call your local office for status. Please look for the general inquiry telephone number at the Social Security Office Locator. The number may appear under Show Additional Office Information. Please be aware that our call wait times are longer than normal. We hope this information helps.
