Understand Social Security Benefits Later In Life

Planning for the future is always complicated. For individuals approaching retirement, maintaining financial independence is of the utmost importance. Yet doing so can be especially difficult for individuals receiving Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), or who plan to obtain widow(er)’s benefits.

What Happens When I Reach Retirement Age?

If you’re receiving Social Security Disability benefits when you reach full retirement age, there’s good news: your disability benefits automatically convert to retirement benefits, typically in the same amount you are already receiving.

Our lawyers can help you understand a variety of related issues such as:

  • The benefits and drawbacks of early retirement
  • Using Medicare or Medicaid when receiving SSD/SSI benefits
  • Availability of benefits for your spouse and dependents

If you have a disability, it is especially important to start planning for retirement as early as possible. Speak to our attorneys about making strategic financial decisions regarding benefits before and during retirement.
