I have a friend who was on SSDI until FRA. She is now 75, on Social Security AND SSI - because the SS benefit is so low. She is also on Medicare and Medicaid. Medicaid pays the Medicare Part B premium.

For people who don't qualify for social security disability, they go on SSI. I believe it's the same for those who go on social security retirement. SSI is for those who don't have enough work credits.
Not annoying. The OP posted expecting responses who are familiar with the rules of SSDI. CDR is a familiar term to people who are on SSDI for any length of time.

By now, the OP has confirmation that the person will be converted to regular SS retirement benefits at her FRA, which sounds like it is 66. SSDI will not be an issue/factor after that. So no, no more CDRs.
