Often, we will receive calls from individuals 62 years and older who are
already receiving Social Security retirement benefits, but want to attempt
to receive social Security Disability benefits for example in Prescott.
Many people do not know this but claimants can obtain Social Security Disability
benefits when they are already receiving early retirement benefits as
long as they meet the medical requirements for Social Security disability.
Early retirement benefits are paid as of age 62 should the individual decide
to file for them. They are usually paid at a much lower rate than the
disability benefit would be paid, which is typically equal to the amount
owed at full retirement - 66 years old.
Please feel free to contact Fendon Law Firm if you have any questions about
this topic or any other social security disability issues in Arizona.
We have offices in Flagstaff, Prescott, Phoenix, and Tucson.
