Additional pension

Kindly clarify the following doubt:
Additional pension of 20% will be given (a) after completion of 79 years and attaining 80 years or (b) after completion of 80 years and attaining age of 81 years?
My father-in-law's birth date is 13/09/1937.
Kindly clarify and oblige.

But I still have a doubt. In the Table it is written "attaining". Does it mean completing or entering 80th year?

In the Dictionary the meaning of "attaining"

gerund or present participle: attaining
  1. succeed in achieving (something that one has worked for).
    "clarify your objectives and ways of attaining them"
    synonyms: achieveaccomplishreach, arrive at, come by, obtain,gainprocuresecuregetgrasphooknetwinearn,acquireestablishmakeMore
    • reach (a specified age, size, or amount).
      "dolphins can attain speeds in water which man cannot yet emulate"

For the sake of simpicity; Read it w.e.f. last Birthday and/or midnight of 80th DOB.

Thank you Doab Sir for simplifying the querry...

1st birtday comes on completion of one year

2nd  birtday comes on completion of two years...and so on

Hence 80th birthday  comes on completion of 80 years...!

Hope, I got it right...

Confusion was between "attaining" & "completing"!!!!
