Family members who qualify for SSDI benefits
Based on the work of a family member who is receiving Social Security disability (SSD) benefits, certain family members may also qualify for SSD financial benefits.
A beneficiary’s spouse may be qualified to receive benefits if he or she is 62 or older. However, a spouse may also be entitled to benefits regardless of age if he or she is taking care of the child of the beneficiary who is under 16 years old or is considered disabled.
The children of the beneficiary who are under 18 years old and are unmarried may also get benefits if they are studying full time in elementary or secondary school. Children aged 18 and older who are proven disabled by the Social Security Administration may also get benefits, as long as the disability begun before they turned 22 years old.
