All Social Security benefits are less before full retirement age. At full retirement age, you get the maximum amount that you are entitled to. Your disability benefits are based on the amount before your full retirement age. Once you reach your full retirement age, you disability benefits automatically change to regular retirement benefits and the amount that you would receive would then increase.
