Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.
At full retirement age disability benefits are automatically converted to regular benefits. If she is already at full retirement age, than the answer is no, she cannot apply for SS disability benefits. To get disability benefits before full retirement age and after applying for SS benefits, the applicant must prove that the disability started before his/her application for benefits.
I see you read my respond. Do you have any questions? Is there anything else I can help you with today?
