What is the earliest age that I can receive Social Security disability benefits?
There actually is no age limit required to receive social security disability benefits. You can receive disability as a child, as a newborn even, up to age 18. That is a separate program evaluated separately by the Social Security Administration.
Over age 18 it’s considered adult social security benefits, and from that age forward, you can get it until your retirement age, and that retirement age is based on the Social Security Administration system’s retirement which used to be a flat 65 years old for everyone and now is at a staged program depending on your date of birth. You can look that up under ssa.gov in order to find when your full retirement age is. However, you can apply for disability benefits and be eligible at any age prior to full retirement age.
