No, once you take retirement benefits you are no longer eligible for SSDI at a later time.

You can apply for SSDI & early retirement benefits at the same time if you are first applying for SSDI at 62 or later, but if SSA does not find your disability Established Onset Date on or before the day you applied for retirement benefits, you are permanently on the lower early retirement benefits.
Age at Application: 26 age of onset (but I did not apply until 28)
Date Applied: August 2011
First Approval/Denial Date: November 2011
Additional Info: I was fortunate to be approved on my initial application due to extensive medical records (12+ doctors) & documentation of unsuccessful work attempts even with significant accommodations
