No. You should be receiving your full retirement benefit as a disability benefit now, and the only thing that will change is what the benefit is called. That won't happen until you turn 66 not 65 as 66 is your full retirement age as you were born in 1951.The only increase in your benefits will be any cost of living increases, which have been nil lately.
