If you are collecting Social Security disability as an Indiana resident, do not fear losing it when you hit retirement age. To learn more about your legal rights of obtaining Social Security benefits when you reach retirement, seek legal counsel with a disability law service in Indiana.
If you are currently working and are receiving Social Security disability in Indiana, when you hit your retirement age, your Social Security disability benefits will not stop; they will just change to Social Security retirement benefits.
You should know that you will not receive 2 separate payments of Social Security and you will not be granted full Social Security retirement benefits if you retire at an age that does not correspond to an appropriate retirement age considered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). The SSA has criteria that allows for certain age groups to retire and collect full benefits.
For instance, if you were born in the year 1955, your full retirement age is 66 and 2 months. If you were born in 1960 or thereafter, your retirement age is 67. Once you have reached your retirement age and decide to retire, you will then be eligible to receive Social Security retirement benefits.
The process of claiming Social Security disability can be complex and confusing. A disability law service in Indiana can help you understand your legal rights and fight for the benefits you deserve, whether you are receiving Social Security disability in Indiana, have your claim denied, or are pursuing Social Security retirement benefits.
