...

Yes, when you turn FUll Retirement Age (FRA) you won't miss a check.

...

You will start receiving a Social Security Retirement check in the same amount.

...

You will (at age 65) be switched to Medicare. But your retirement checks won't be coming from different source until you hit age 67 (full retirement age for someone born in 1964).

...

But again, there will no interruption. You'll just see a few differences on what printed on the check (or automatic deposit advice) becasue, again it's a retirement check after you turn 67.
