Children over the age of 18 with a disability might be eligible for Social Security benefits on the record of a parent. There are several criteria that must be met in order to be eligible for Adult Disabled Child benefits.
The onset of the disabling condition must be prior to the age of 22 and must be continuing to present. The adult disabled child cannot have worked after the age of 22 and one of the parents must be deceased, disabled or retired, and must have met the insured status for Social Security. If the adult child is married, he/she is not eligible for these benefits.
If you think you might meet the requirements for Adult Disabled Child benefits, complete our free, online questionnaire and one of our representatives will call you to discuss your case.
