This is not for me, but someone asked me and now I wonder. If you already get Social Security disability, what happens when you turn 62 and can get regular retirement?

My brother has been on SSDI and Medicare since he became legally blind in his 50s. My understanding is that he need do nothing. Social Security will automatically switch him from SSDI to regular SS at the first month of his full benefit age (in his case, 66--he's not quite there yet).

Your friend should have no fear about calling their local SS office and asking. Use an assumed name if preferred, or have a friend call. We pay SS workers to answer our questions, after all :-)
