Actually, all Social Security Disability benefits automatically change to retirement benefits at your full retirement age, so your payments are no longer classified as "disability benefits". If you were receiving disability benefits before you reached full retirement age (65 or 66), then your benefits would only increase by any cost of living increases which have been few & far between since you reached full retirement age.
