You should receive Social Security disability benefits as long as you remain disabled. (Note: There are a few exceptions. Your benefits might stop if you return to work, have an improvement in your condition, or are incarcerated.) However, once you become eligible for full retirement benefits, your disability benefits will change to retirement benefits. Full retirement age is 66 if you were born from 1943 to 1954. The full retirement age increases gradually from 66 to 67 if you were born from 1955 to 1960. For anyone born in 1960 or later, full retirement benefits are payable at age 67.
