Receiving SS Disability after taking early retirement benefits

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Thu, 01/18/2018 - 16:00

I filed for SS at age 62, and it will start this month. I just learned from my doctor that I can actually receive disability due to stage 4 cancer. How do I file for disability online--do I start with a new application? I don't see anything on my profile online where I can file for disability without starting over. What form do I use?
Thanks in advance.

Hi there,
You may not be eligible if you had already filed for retirement benefits, as you would only be able to receive either benefit but not both.
