Is this new Social Security ruling confirmed? What are my options?
I don’t believe the ruling is anything new. Disability benefits convert automatically to retirement benefits at full retirement age. See this information - http://www.ssa.gov/planners/disability/dqualify.htmlYou should still be able to switch to 1/2 of your wife’s full retirement age benefit if that amount is higher than what you receive now. There would be an application process involved. You don’t get your benefit her 1/2. You get whichever amount is higher.
