I just started psn+ last month. I downloaded the games from last month an hour ago for the ps5 (both ps4 and ps5 games), since they go offline on the 7th. I'm going to try to keep up with new games each month, but what happens to games from previous months. I looked on playstation.com, and it said that you have until the second week of every month to get the previous month's games, and afaik, they continue to work indefinitely as long you're still a member? I think that's what it said anyway, so am I reading that right? you don't have to play the games during that one month, then delete them? that would be a major pita.

As long as you claim that month's games, you can download and play them as long as you have PS+. If you unsub from PS+, you won't be able to play those games without purchasing them. If you resub at a later date, you'll still have access all the games you claimed via PS+.
However, you can't play games from month's you didn't claim. I.e. you missed out on October's games, so you can't play Mortal Kombat X, even if you're subbed, without purchasing it.
I hope that all makes sense, and I'm sorry if it's confusing.
