    It is the same thing. There is no such thing are regular SSI. SSI is disability regardless of age. Age does not matter. If your asking if she should switch to Social Security Retirement Benefits, you need to go into the social security office and sit down with someone to go over which is better for her, SSI or Social Security Retirement Benefits. Which is better depends on which plan will give her more money. Did she work all of her life or part ? Or, can she get half of our Social Security Retirement Money? And, if she can get half of your Social Security money it does NOT effect your check.

    So, it comes down to which plan would she get more money out of, SSI Or Social Security Retirement benefits ?

    Go into the social security office and someone will help you figure that out.

    Is she on SSDI or SSI? At 66, she will get her retirement benefit.

    This isn't a question about cancer, it's about coverage. Moved to insurance.

    Your wife was on social security disability, when she turned 65 the SS Disability automatically turns into SS retirement which she will have for life. It should be the same pay as SS disability

    Depends which country but I am in UK and when my dad had cancer he was already a pensioner but also got disability allowance before he did but here in UK it is now very hard to get it if you can still breath. Good Luck

    no, SSI is WELFARE for people not qualified for SSDI or SS retirement.

    SSDI just converts to SS retirement at retirement age,the benefit amount stays the same

    You've made a series of statements with a question mark at the end.

    What, exactly, are you trying to ask?
