Chapter 11. Social Security > Full Retirement Age

Full Retirement Age

Full retirement benefits under Social Security were traditionally paid at age sixty-five. However, in 1983 the law was changed to gradually increase the age for full retirement to sixty-seven. As shown in the chart that follows, for people born in 1938 the age for full retirement benefits is sixty-five years and two months. The full retirement age for people born since 1960 will be sixty-seven, while for baby boomers born between 1943 and 1954, the age for receiving full retirement benefits will be sixty-six years.
