Her income is limited as long as she is collecting Social Security Disability.

Once she reaches her full retirement age (66 - if she was born in 1954 or before) her disability benefits, along with anyone on disability, will automatically be transferred to Social Security Retirement benefits. Once she reaches full retirement age, there is no earnings limit on what she can earn without affecting her retirement benefits, so that statement as you have expressed it is true.

Let me know if you have any follow-up questions.

Please remember to rate my response as that is the only way the SITE

will credit me for assisting you today.

Thanks very much,

Steve G.
