When you reach your full retirement age, if you were born in 1954, your full retirement age is 66.So, when you reach Age 66 or (your full retirement age if you weren't born in 1954) your disability benefit (SSDI) will automatically change to a retirement benefit and you will have no work restrictions.While you are on SSDI, there are several different programs and limits involved. The earnings limitations vary but most are between $810. a month and $1,130. a month depending upon what work program you qualify for.The best information is online at www.ssa.govHere's a link to take you directly to the Disability information about working and keeping your benefits. you go to that link by opening it in a new tab (right click on it) & count down 6 topics, that will take you to a Social Security Publication that explains everything in plain language.
