Unfortunately, you CANNOT receive both Social Security Retirement and Social Security Disability benefits. Since you are 72 you are eligible to receive Social Security benefits. Had you been receiving Social Security Disability benefits they would have converted to retirement benefits when you reached full retirement age. They are based on the same calculation approach and therefore one benefit would not be higher than the other.
