Hi Mr Larry.
I am the only survivor of my deceased parents. I am their daughter. I currently receive SSI Disability. I am not married. If a person married , and divorced while receiving DAC and Social Security Benefits on one parent's record , can the unmarried person file for the same thing on the other deceased parent's record as long as the Disabled Adult Child is unmarried ?
Thank you , Mr Larry
Disabled Adult Child Benefits
I have been approved for disabled adult child benefits off my dads social security retirement record. I am 31. I was approved for benefits on june 13, 2022. Social security found me disabled by their rules on june 30, 2008. How much back pay would I receive? Would i be able to receive back pay?
Hi Mr Larry
I collect SSDI and Disabled Adult Child benefits under my deceased father's work record. Can I draw on my mother's record. Can they combine the two.
Hi. If your mother is deceased or drawing Social Security retirement or disability benefits then you may be able to qualify for disabled adult child's (DAC) benefits on her account. However, you could only be paid on whichever record yields the higher benefit rate, not both.
In 2016, my daughter qualified for child disability benefits under my (father's) work record and still receives them. She also receives SSDI under her limited work record. In 2020, SSA required my daughter to apply for child disability benefits under my wife's record; I believe they did this so that she could technically qualify under my wife's record. My daughter's initial application and Request for Reconsideration were denied on the ground that she was not disabled. We are pursuing an ALJ hearing.
Will DAC benefits be affected when a recipient is required to participate in a 401(a) retirement plan?
My child is currently receiving DAC benefits on her father's work record. Her current place of employment is requiring her to sign up for a 401(a) retirement plan where they will contribute to the plan based upon her salary. Her current salary does not equate to SGA. Is this considered countable income or a non-countable resource for purposes of her DAC benefit? Thank you!
70 yo beneficiary on DAC and a small amount of SSI. Parent whose work record he is drawing on died. Beneficiary now eligible for state pension on same work record. I cannot find clear rules regarding whether the GPO or windfall provision applies to DAC benefits. If so, what is the calculation for offset? SSI will drop off also, correct?
I just started receiving social security benefits and I have a child with disabilities (now 13) (life-long disabilities) I read an article that briefly talked about "disabled child benefit" - If he qualifies at age thirteen are there limits that could affect him later in life? Are there downsides to taking this benefit? Thank you.
My son received a favorable CDR in May 2021. He’s 25 and was awarded when he was 18. His dad is retiring in August. Will he have to fill out a new application? If so will they resend for all his medical records and wait for 9-12 months for a decision. Will he need to be medically awarded again or can he just fe switched to SSDi?
Hello, I am past my FRA of 66 .2 on 10/25/21 (born 8/25/1955). My son is 30 years old and has Down Syndrome and lives with my Ex-wife. He does not work or have any income other than his SS or SSI check, I am not sure what he receives. I am going to apply for SS retirement benefits. My son has Medicare part A and B, Humana and Mass health.(Massachusetts Health} Since he may be is eligible for benefits on my earning record will that affect his Mass Health status? Should I add my son to Section 17 of the SS application?.
