SSDI benefits given to eligible children

Children of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) recipients, whether biological, adopted, step children or dependent grandchildren, may also qualify to receive benefits given that they fulfill certain required criteria, including:

  • Children of SSDI recipients should be single, meaning they are not married.
  • Children must be below 18 years of age, or
  • Any child who acquired a disability before the age of 22.
  • Full time students of SSDI recipients aged 18 to 19 that are below grade 12.
