Yes - you will be getting social security benefits when you reach your FRA - full retirement age.
If you re receiving social security disability benefits - they will be converted to regular retirement benefits at your FRA.

The amount will remain the same plus COLA adjustments you will be getting every year.

Your current social security disability benefits are based on your working record - and that determines the amount of benefits.

SSI - supplemental security income is paid because your income is below certain level.
For 2018 that level is $750.

As long as your income will be below that level - you will be getting SSI benefits.
