I don't think we get much traffic about regular retirement. I think once people reach FRA (full retirement age), most don't spend much time on the disability forum anymore.

We have many knowledge people here. Even though SSDFacts is mainly for disability. We do get questions about retirement that do not deal with disability. Usually it is a member than is disabled and they are asking for a family member or friend. You are more than Welcome to ask your questions here.

Social security will be in touch by mail telling you that your SSDI is now regular retirement benefits. Nothing else will change you will just be getting your benefit from a different fund. You still pay Medicare like always.
