HI eligibility for the age 65 or over spouse of a 62-year old worker begins with the month an insured
worker attains age 62, rather than the first month throughout which the worker is age 62.
Neither the worker nor the spouse need actually establish entitlement to monthly benefits
for this provision to apply. If the worker would have been eligible for RIB in the
month they attained age 62 except for the fact that they were not age 62 throughout
the month, the age 65 or over spouse can file for and establish entitlement to HI
for the month the worker attained age 62.
