Q. I am currently receiving disability benefits from FERS and Social Security. I am aware that the FERS benefit will be recalculated at age 62 to reflect my high-3 adjusted for inflation and years of service adjusted for the time on disability to what they would have been had I worked to 62. What I can’t find is whether the Social Security benefit will change at age 62 or 65? I have a vague memory that it may, and my wife needs to know to plan her retirement age and preparations. Is there a Web page with info about this?
A. Social Security disability benefits aren’t age-dependent. You will continue to receive the same Social Security benefit you’ve been receiving, increased by any subsequent annual cost-of-living increases.
