I get conflicting opinions as to when I can draw reduced benefits, some say the same 10 months has to be added to your 62nd birthday, others say they start on your 62nd birthday (but that it may take 3-4 months to get your first check).
Anyone been there, doing that?

Been there done that, you may collect at 62 but it will be at a reduced rate. You should receive first check in thirty days. Enjoy

Thanks for the info. I did a followup with my sources and found that they had received bad info and didn't even apply until the 4 month 'offset' had elapsed -- thereby costing themselves 4 months worth of benefits. Too bad.
At least I know now that I don't have to re-do my spreadsheet.
