i didn'y retire cuz i wanted but was pulled of work by my drs at mayo cuz i was having a lot of problems with rupturing verices and i was get surgery lots of times and i worked with chemicles at work so it was irritating due to the surgerys they would put me to sleep and do endoscopy and go in and band my verices that was why the drs pulled me off not because i wanted . so why can't i get payed what i'm allowed to get .

Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you.

You cannot receive disability benefit after your full retirement age. Nobody does, that's the rule. At full retirement age all disability benefits are automatically converted to the traditional old age benefits. It does not mean that you are not disabled any more, it only means that you reached your full retirement age and are entitled to regular benefits.

Disability benefits are early benefits. Once you reach your full retirement age, you are not entitled to early benefits any more, you are not entitled to your regular social security benefits. Unless you applied for any social security benefits before your disability started, your benefits should be same. There should not be any difference.
