Adults eligible for SSDI “child” benefits
In certain situations, adults may be entitled to receive Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits for children, given that they have been disabled before reaching the age of 22.
Disabled adults should qualify for the following criteria in order to receive SSDI benefits:
- Their parents are either receiving SSDI or retirement benefits.
- They have parents who have died but contributed enough to qualify for Social Security benefits before they passed.
Understanding Social Security disability can be complicated, and wading through the legalities of the application process is particularly difficult to do on your own.
