You do eligible - but may not receive TWO social security benefits at the same time.As social security disability benefits are likely higher - you will be receiving your social security disability benefits.

However - when you reach your FRA - full retirement age - that is 66 - your Social Security disability benefits automatically change to retirement benefits - and the amount will remain the same adjusted by COLA.The law does not allow a person to receive both retirement and disability benefits on one earnings record at the same time...I appreciate if you take a moment to rate the answer.Experts are ONLY credited when answers are rated positively.If you still have any doubts, need clarification - please be sure to ask.I am here to help you with all tax related issues.
