Can you receive Social Security benefits and SSDI at the same time?
You may be confusing the different types of Social Security benefits in your question.

When people refer to "Social Security," they general mean retirement benefits. SSDI is Social Security Disability Insurance, which is paid from the same fund, but available only to disabled people who are below full retirement age.

If you're asking whether you can receive both Social Security retirement and Social Security disability benefits, the answer is no. If you meet SSA guidelines for disability, you receive SSDI until you become ineligible or reach retirement age, whichever occurs first. If you remain on SSDI until retirement, your Social Security benefits automatically convert from disability to retirement. You can't receive both at the same time.

If you're asking whether you can receive Social Security disability or retirement benefits with Supplemental Security Income (SSI), the answer is yes, if your income is low enough. SSI is a form of welfare for low-income disabled people and seniors age 65 and older.
