Sometimes people who are older wonder if they should file for Social Security Disability or just wait for retirement age?

There are advantages to applying for Social Security Disability.

If you win your case you can get Medicare coverage sooner than 65 years of age. This is a big advantage. Especially if you have no medical insurance, or limited coverage.

If you win your Social Security Disability case you also will receive a higher monthly payment than you would get for early Social Security retirement benefits.

You can also work part-time and earn less than $1,000 per month gross when you are disabled.

All pretty good reasons for applying for Social Security Disability.
