Can I obtain an MBI for a deceased beneficiary using the eServices MBI Lookup tool?

Answer: Yes. Users may obtain an MBI as long as the Medicare beneficiary information entered is valid and the date of death was within the last 4 years. On June 13, 2020, the deceased beneficiary MBI Lookup was extended from 13 months to 4 years from the date the MBI Lookup inquiry is performed.
