Can You Receive Social Security Disability & Retirement?

Can You Receive Social Security Disability & Retirement?

A substantial number of people elect to receive Social Security Disability benefits if they are eligible. What is unclear for many is how collecting these benefits will affect their future retirement benefits and what happens to these disability benefits when employees reach full retirement age. 

What is Full Retirement Age?

Contrary to what many people believe, the Social Security Administration (SSA) has determined “full retirement age” is only 65 for people who were born in 1937 or earlier. For those born after 1937, the SSA has defined “full retirement age” as follows:

  • 1938: 65 + 2 months
  • 1939: 65 + 4 months
  • 1940: 65 + 6 months
  • 1941: 65 + 8 months
  • 1942: 65 + 10 months
  • 1943 to 1954: 66 years old
  • 1955: 66 + 2 months
  • 1956: 66 + 4 months
  • 1957: 66 + 6 months
  • 1958: 66 + 8 months
  • 1959: 66 + 10 months
  • 1960 or after: 67 years old

What Happens to Social Security Disability in Retirement?

Your previous SSD benefits will not be terminated once you reach full retirement age. Instead, they will be converted to retirement benefits from another Social Security fund that will no longer be paid through SSD. However, you should not experience a gap in benefits, and the benefits will be processed the same way as your SSDI. Another important thing to note is that once you reach full retirement age, your benefits will no longer be restricted by earning limits as SSD benefits are. This means if you choose to, you could get a higher salary from a part-time job or different source of income without suffering from a reduction in your monthly benefit amount.

Will the Amount of Benefits Go Down in Retirement?

No. If you elect to start receiving retirement benefits at full retirement age, the monthly benefit amount will remain the same as your SSD benefit. This is because the retirement benefits you receive from the SSA are based on what you contributed to Social Security during employment just as disability benefits are.

What if You Start Receiving Retirement Benefits Prior to Full Retirement Age?

At times, people elect to start receiving early retirement benefits once they reach 62. However, if you are already on SSD, you are not eligible for conversion to early retirement benefits at 62. Rather, you would merely keep receiving SSD benefits until you hit the full retirement age listed above and at that point, the SSA would simply switch your SSD to retirement benefits.

    Great input. Btw have you heard about this product: Looks like it’s one of those products you don’t normally talk about. I’ve come across it two days ago and thought I’d test it out just to see how good it is. Have found some video reviews on Dailymotion and they look legit (I mean not scripted). Not many products out there have so many positive opinions. Have a look on it, maybe this can finally solve our problems (or at least yours).

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a difficult time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I do like the way you have presented this specific matter and it does present me personally some fodder for consideration. Nonetheless, through what precisely I have witnessed, I just simply hope as the actual responses stack on that people stay on point and in no way embark on a soap box associated with some other news of the day. Still, thank you for this exceptional point and even though I do not necessarily go along with this in totality, I respect the perspective.
