I am currently 62 1/2 yrs. old on SSDI and want to return to work. Can I apply for regular Social Security and return to work and not have to worry about losing my income.

    Perhaps asking your local Social Security office might be better than relying on opinions here. Jan 30, 2016 at 4:06

I, also, am on SSDI. I am also 63 Yrs old.

SSDI has a return to work program that allows you to earn income while you still get SSDI checks. It has a time limit you can do this which is a year, if I remember correctly.

Also, you can work part time and not put your SSDI at risk if you earn less than a certain amount each month. Last time I checked (about three years ago) the limit was $1000 a month. I believe that you have to report your income to the SS office each month.

But to get definitive answers you need to visit your SS office.
