Can a person on...

Can a person on SSDI apply for Social Security retirement when 62?

Accountant's Assistant: These retirement benefits are supposed to help us but they can be so complicated! The Retirement Expert will help you get the most benefits propertly. Please tell me more, so we can help you best.

This is not for me, but I need to know which questions to ask to get the right information.

Accountant's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Retirement Accountant should know?

The person I am asking about is a veteran.

Absolutely yes - you may switch to your regular social security retirement benefits at age 62 - but please be aware that amount will likely be less than the amount of disability social security benefits.

You may voluntarily choose to terminate disability social security benefits with the SSA and still qualify for retirement benefits as long as you have enough work credits to qualify for benefits.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
