What do you need to know about retirement benefits
I need to know what questions you have, before I can better assist you .
I am receiving disability benefits at this time. I am unable to work due to multiple health problems..If I apply for retirement, will I still
get to keep my disability? Can you tell me how much money I will get if I retire?
If you are receiving disability benefits, they will automatically change to retirement benefits when you reach full retirement age, which is 66. So, you will continue your disability until full retirement age, and then it will switch automatically.
You can't draw disability and retirement at the same time.
So, I guess disability is more than retirement would be?
Also, I could not tell you what your benefit is. We are not social security, therefore we don't have access to your personal information. However, your retirement benefit should be slightly higher than your disability benefit - by slightly I mean no more than $100 higher
Yes, disability is more than what you would get if you applied for retirement right now, because if you did it right now they would reduce your benefit because you are not 66
