Good afternoon,

You say that you are already on social security. Alright, and you are visually impaired.

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you are under 66 and disabled, you can apply for SSDI. That would pay you a little more than you are receiving if you are already taking early social security retirement.

There are no sources of social security money for you aside from SSDI if you are proven disabled, and your retirement benefit.

So if you are asking whether there are benefits for you based on your disability and age other than retirement benefits or disability benefits, then no---those are it I'm afraid.

You may reply back to me using the Reply link and I will be happy to continue to assist you until I am able to address your concerns, to your satisfaction.

I hope that I have been able to fully answer your question. As I am not an employee of JustAnswer, please be so kind as to rate my service to you. That is the only way I am compensated for assisting you. Thank you in advance.

I wish you and yours the best in 2016,

Doug
