What happens when a Social Security disability beneficiary reaches full retirement age?

When a Social Security Disability Income (SSDI) beneficiary reaches his or her full retirement age, the Social Security Administration changes the recipient’s SSDI benefit to a “retirement” benefit. The amount of the recipient’s monthly benefit will not change because the person’s disability amount is already the highest amount payable on that person’s Social Security records. The only difference, which the recipient will not “see,” is that the person’s benefits are then paid from the Social Security Retirement Trust Fund.
