Hi,

You can't receive both Social Security retirement and disability benefits at the same time. So, there won't be any change in your benefits when you reach age 62. Your disability benefits are the equivalent of your full retirement age rate paid early because of disability. When you reach full retirement age, your disability benefits will convert to retirement benefits at the same rate.

Best, Jerry
