Howard Kossover: Full retirement age has gradually gone up since 1983 SSA Amendments
Q: When did full retirement age change to age 66?
A: Full retirement age (FRA) is the age at which a person may first become entitled to full, unreduced, retirement benefits.
The original Social Security Act of 1935 established that retirement, then the only SSA benefit, could begin at age 65.
