For example if the person Birthdate(MM/dd) = System.Date.Today(MM/dd) then

Please Help me with this

Why do you need to? There is absolutely no point in storing this value in the database because it will be incorrect 99% of the time. Store only the birthdate, then when you need to display the age on a view or printed report, calculate it at the time of display from today's date and the DOB from the database.

I Agree
As Richard MacCutchan has mentioned, you need to use query to calculate age. You don't need to store its value in a database.
SELECT [BirthDate], Date() AS [Today], DateDiff("yyyy", [BirthDate], Date())  AS [Age]

MS Access: Date() function[^]
MS Access: DateDiff function[^]
