  If the full retirement age is increasing, is the minimum age also increasing?
  If my full retirement age is 65 and 10 months, do I have to wait until age 62 and 10 months to start getting reduced retirement benefits?

No. No matter what your full retirement age is, you can still start your benefits at a reduced rate as early as age 62. This is how your benefit amount will be reduced at this age.
