Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

At 75 social security benefits would switch to regular old age benefits long time ago so I am assuming you are not taking about social security disability benefits. Yes, you can draw your social benefits in addition to any other pensions or disability payments you may receive. Your disability will not affect your social security benefits.
