Alabama Social Security Disability Lawyers Can I receive Social Security Disability Benefits if I am already receiving Social Security Retirement?
This is a very good question, and one the Alabama Disability Lawyers at Powell and Denny often are asked. No, you can not receive Social Security Disability Benefits (SSDI) if you are already receiving Social Security Retirement. You have to remember that essentially, Social Security Disability benefits are just early retirement benefits for medical reasons.
To qualify for Social Security Disability benefits, you have to have worked for 5 of the last 10 years and paid your Social Security taxes and have a medical condition that prevents you from being able to hold down a full-time job. In fact, if you are awarded SSDI benefits, once you turn to your retirement age, you check no longer states it is for Social Security Disability, but instead states it is for Social Security Retirement.
If you are disabled and you have questions about your right to Social Security Disability (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, or if your claim has been denied and you want assistance appealing your denial, please do not hesitate to contact and speak with one of the experienced Alabama Social Security Disability lawyers at Powell and Denny for a free consultation.
Appointments are available in person, or virtually through Zoom for your convenience.
