Customer Question

I am 66 year old person currently continuing to work and I am drawing my social security. Working is getting much harder with some physical problems that are popping up. Could I quit working and go on disability social security?

Hi,

NO, unfortunately SSD ends when we hit our full retirement age. Moreover, it is equal to our full retirement age amount, so you'd gain nothing.

It looks like if you have to continue to collecting your SSR, you will be unable to increase its amount via DRCs (delayed retirement credits), and if you have to stop working, it may be more likely that you can not afford to defer (suspend) your benefits til a later age up to 70, to gain that increase.
