Can your family qualify for benefits if you are approved for Social Security Disability?

Comments Off

If you are approved for Social Security Disability, certain members of your family may qualify for benefits based on your work. They include:

  • Your spouse, if he or she is 62 or older;
  • Your spouse, at any age if he or she is caring for a child of yours who is younger than age 16 or disabled;
  • Your unmarried child, including an adopted child, or, in some cases, a stepchild or grandchild. The child must be under age 18 or under age 19 if in elementary or secondary school full time; and
  • Your unmarried child, age 18 or older, if he or she has a disability that started before age 22. (The child’s disability also must meet the definition of disability for adults.)
