Ask a Social Security Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Good afternoon, I'm Doug, and I'm sorry to hear of the confusion. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today. Actually, you only think that you are still receiving SSDI. Social security automatically switches you from disability to retirement at full retirement age---which was age 66 for you. You probably didn’t notice it because the benefit generally stays the same when you transition from SSDI to retirement. But if you hadn't been switched, no, switching after full retirement age would not increase your benefit. I'm sorry. Please keep in mind that, even though you have already paid your deposit money over to JustAnswer, until you rate me highly for my service, I will not be paid for having assisted you with your questions. If you have additional questions, you may reply back to me using the Reply to Expert link and I will be happy to assist you further until your questions have been answered to your satisfaction. I wish you the best in your future. Doug
