Securing SSD Benefits For Disabled Children

Children with disabilities face unique challenges. This is particularly true for those unable to earn a substantial living due to a severe, long-term injury or disability. Among other hurdles, they do not have the work history to qualify for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits on their own. Fortunately, the law provides a way around this obstacle.

How To Pursue Benefits For A Minor Or Adult Child

Adult children with disabilities can sometimes qualify for SSD benefits based on their parents’ work history, whether the parent is still living or not. Additionally, if you receive Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits, you may be eligible for benefits for your dependent children who are under age 18, regardless of whether they are disabled.

Pursuing benefits for a child with disabilities is more complicated than applying for SSD on your own. The interplay between SSD and SSI can also be complex. Much depends on the individual circumstances of your child and his or her medical condition.
