Normal Social Security Retirement Age Table

 

Normal retirement age is the age at which an employee may receive unreduced Social Security retirement benefits. This age varies by date of birth and is set by section 216(1) of the Social Security Act, 42 U.S.C. 416(1). In general, persons born during or before 1937 are eligible for unreduced Old Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) (i.e. Social Security) retirement benefits at age 65. The eligibility age increases in two-month increments for persons born between 1937 and 1960 until it reaches 67, which is the age at which persons born during or after 1960 become eligible for unreduced OASDI retirement benefits.

 

         The normal retirement age is age 65 for a covered Part E employee born on 1/1/38 or earlier.

         For a covered Part E employee born on 1/2/38 or later, please refer to the chart below for the normal retirement age respectively:
