With regard to your post:

Yes, at the age of FULL RETIREMENT AGE (FRA), which should be 66, your husband's benefit will change only in name, not in amount. Although he collected Social Security early, because it was due to disability and not choice, he did not get the "penalty" others get by collecting earlier than FRA. He got his FRA amount, noted as 'disability'. So come his FRA year, he will continue that full amount with no discount, and he will no longer be considered disabled, but simply 'retired' like everyone else collecting SSRIB.
