If my disabled child already receives Ssdi based on my spouse social security records when I retire will I have to file for his ssdi to be recalculated based on what my retirement amount be or will I have the option of not allowing him to receive the higher benefit amount that will impact his Ssi?
Disabled Adult Child Benefits
My wife receives SS as she is over 62 and retired. Our 31 year old son was declared disabled before turning 22 and receives SSI. I was told (by a friend) that to get half of his mothers SS that we would have to start over and re-apply. Is that correct and if not how do we go about getting half her benfits for him.
Thank you any help that you can provide
I get adult SSI but I got diagnosed when I was a child. I have medical records dating back40 years or more, was hospitalized numerous times as a child, but didn't get benefits until my early 20s because my mother didn't know to apply. She's passed on now, and I was wondering if I could possibly be eligible to receive benefits off her records and if it's even worth finding out and filing for. Thank you and have a good one.
I have a 32 year old adult disabled daughter (who was deemed disabled before age 22) on both SSI and SSDI based on her own work record. She earned 6 credits before age 24 which qualified her to collect SSDI on her own work record in addition to collecting SSI. During the time she worked she never reached SGA (Substantial Gainful Activity). Her father just filed for retirement benefits and as a result our daughter will be entitled to Childhood Disability Benefits (CDB) off of his work record.
My 56 YO sister-in-law is developmentally disabled and is a resident of a community specifically for the Intellectually Disabled. She is currently receiving DAC benefits. She pays a monthly "residential" fee of approximately $3700 per month. Recently with the help of her counselors, a job coach and their providing her transportation to and from work, she got a job working off campus and is quite excited. It is my understanding that if she were to exceed the SGA earnings, that she could lose her DAC benefits. If so, she will be unable to reside there any longer.
I have a 31year old adult disabled daughter receiving both SSI an SSDI (on her own work record). Her father will be filing for Social Security Retirement Benefits soon. When her father files for SS Retirement Benefits we can also file an application for (Child's Insurance Benefits) based on his work record. As a result she is entitled to benefits on more then one earnings record (her own and her fathers). I also know she would not collect the maximum amount on both earnings records. She would collect the higher of the two and she would also not collect SSI anymore.
Can I apply for child survival benefits if I'm an adult on ssi I been disabled at age 20 but I wasn't on ssi
Hi. You can always apply, but to eligible for disabled adult child's (DAC) benefits it would have to be determined that you became disabled according to Social Security standards prior to turning age 22. You'd also need to have a parent who is either drawing Social Security retirement or disability benefits or who is deceased and was insured for Social Security benefits.
I receive Disabled Adult Child benefits. At age 65, do they 'convert' to regular retirement benefits the way SSDI benefits do?
Hi. No. Disabled adult child's benefits are either a survivor or auxiliary benefit based on a parent's earnings history. Social Security disability (SSDI) and retirement benefits are both based on the disabled/retired worker's own earnings history, and SSDI benefits convert to Social Security retirement benefits when the recipient reaches full retirement age (FRA).
My son receives SSI for Down Syndrome, when I start receiving SS at age 67 my full retirement age, can my son then get half of my eligible disability payment (this would make a huge difference from $529 to $1,292)? Would we be subject to the family maximum if I receive SS at age 67 (38 yr work history), my wife receives SS at age 67 (35 yr work history) and my son receives half of my eligible disability payment (the total would be about $6,000)? Thank you so much for your response!
Question on this, I'm applying for my Social security now at 62, my son is disable and I have talked to several people at the office and at the 800 number and they tell me it is based off when I apply for my social security which will be age 62 and not my full 66/10. His this correct/ thanks
