Question by suzjoy: How does receiving Disability affect my Social Security benefits later in life?
I started getting Disability in my 50s, and am now 61. I receive just Disability (not SSI), and am wondering what happens at age 65? Do I start receiving regular SS, and does it end earlier than if I hadnever gotten Disability?? Thanks.

If you are receiving Social Security disability benefits when you reach full retirement age, those benefits will be converted to retirement benefits.
