You can begin receiving Social Security at age 62. The amount that you receive gets higher the longer you wait to apply for Social Security. That's the basic, simple answer. However, there are circumstances under which a person could receive SS benefits prior to age 62.

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 private disability insurance payments after you begin receiving Social Security disability or retirement benefits, that depends on the policy.
