Please advise if this or is not correct. Eligibility for age 62 Social Security benefits begins in the month AFTER that birthday and first benefits are paid in the month after that. E.g., if 62nd birthday is July 26, August is the first month of eligibility for benefits which will be paid in September. But, eligibility for age 65 or 70 Social Security benefits begins IN the month of that birthday with benefits that are paid in the following month. E.g., if this birthday is July 26, July is the first month of eligibility for benefits which will be paid in August. Thank you.
