Use DateTime.Now to get the current date on the page_load.

Then use code to populate the two select lists as such.
selectList => items.
items.Add(new SelectListItem        {            Text = "January",            Value = "1",            Selected = true        });

-- something like this? select the current with the current year + 3???

<html>
<head>

  <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">

  function windowOnLoad ()
  {
      var currentTime = new Date();
      var month = currentTime.getMonth() ;      
      var year  = currentTime.getFullYear ();      
      // adding 3 more years
      for (i=0;i<3;i++)
      {              
            var objOption = new Option (year, year ) ;
            document.getElementById('year').options[i] = objOption;
            year++;
      }
      // setting up 12 months
      for (j=0;j<=12;j++)
      {
            
            var objOption = new Option (j+1, j+1 ) ;
            document.getElementById('month').options[j] = objOption;
      }
      //select the current month
      document.getElementById('month').value = month;
      
  }
      
  </script>

Also when add the onSelectValueChanged. On the selectList for the current year add from current month to december. When the value of the year is changed to not be the current year add all 12 months to the month selectList.
