Most men and women are not able to receive disability benefits and social security retirement benefits at the same time. This is because the social security disability program is designed to offer benefits for men and women who are unable to work because of their current disability condition. In addition, this type of social security program is designed to help men and women who are not old enough to receive their retirement benefits. Most of the time social security can be a type of retirement benefit for men and women who have to retire early because of their disability. However, once the retirement age has been reached, the social security benefits will be converted to retirement benefits.
