    I am currently receiving Disability Social Security Benefits. When I reach the full retirement age for full regular Social Security benefits can I elect to receive full retirement age Social Security in place of my Disability Social Security Benefits?

    Simple answer is yes. Sorry for late response. Hope this helps someone at least in a similar situation. The exert to answer this question:

    Once you reach full retirement age, your benefits simply convert to retirement benefits, but your payment amount will not change. Your future retirement benefits are not reduced even though you were able to collect Social Security early. Also, you will get the benefit of a “disability freeze.”


    Here are some resources to fully answer how it works:
