Social Security: SSA has several benefit options
Q: Can a person file for both Social Security retirement and disability benefits at age 62? Due to health, I have not worked for about a year and will soon reach age 62.
A: You have several Social Security options. You can file on your record just for Social Security disability, just for retirement or for both.
You can file for Social Security disability now if unable to work due to health.
