Are you referring to private disability or social security disability? If you are referring to social security disability, once your application for Social Security disability benefits has been approved, you can potentially receive disability benefits up to the point at which you reach retirement age, unless there is a reason they should stop. (At retirement age, your benefits continue, but if you have been receiving SSDI, your monthly payments will become Social Security retirement income, and if you have been receiving SSI disability, your payments will become SSI for the elderly.) For information on the reasons why benefits can stop before you reach retirement age, refer to the following link:
