An individual born on the first or second day of the month (attainment of age 62 on
the last day of the preceding month or the first day of the current month) could be
entitled to benefits for the month of his or her 62nd birthday. Birth on any other
day of the month would preclude entitlement for the month in which the birth occurs
since the individual would not be age 62 for that entire month.
This provision applies only to claimants for retirement benefits who attain age 62
after August 1981. A claimant who was born on September 1, 1919 would attain age 62
on August 31, 1981, and could, therefore, be entitled for August because this provision
would not apply.
