SSDI is a federally funded and administered program that provides disability benefits to people who qualify to receive it. One question about social security disability insurance is whether or not you can receive it and retirement benefits at the same time. Typically you are not allowed to receive social security retirement benefits and social security disability benefits at the same time. Usually SSDI is given to anyone who is forced to retire early due to their inability to work from their condition or disability. Once they become of age, their SSDI income is switched into normal retirement social security income. However, if you retire early which is possible at the age of 62, and then become eligible for SSDI, then there might be an exception to receive both.
If someone received less than a full months retirement benefit during a certain period of time, and then was approved for SSDI, social security will make up the difference between the early retirement amount and SSDI amount during those months the person was disabled but receiving early retirement benefits. Obviously this is a rare occurrence that does not typically happen.
