What month do retirement benefits begin?

An individual who meets all other requirements for entitlement can receive benefits beginning with the first full month the individual turns age 62. Thus, benefits are not paid for the month a person reaches age 62 unless their birthday is on the first or second day of the month. (Under a common law rule, a person reaches a given age on the day before their birthday.)
