My father worked for the Erie Lackawanna Railroad, when I was nine years old we went to Niagara Falls. On the return trip we were in the switching station, our engine had to release itself to let another train go by. The train was in the process of rehooking itself to our train. It approached our train at 30 miles an hour, I fell back across the seat in the men's room. The railroad said they were not liable for my injury, because we were traveling on my father's pass. Not a ticket, I found out in 2009 when I had a CT of my lungs it showed an old fracture at C2 in my neck.
Disabled Adult Child Benefits
can son draw off fathers social security if he was diagnosed with disability (bipolar) when he was 15 or possibly collect back money if he did not apply for benefits until after 21 but has papers where he was diagnosed bipolar at age 15
I am 49, my husband died at the age of 41 in 2017 after falling from scaffolding at work. We automatically began receiving worker's compensation death benefits due to his workplace death (mine are lifetime, our son's are until he is out of school unless he is deemed disabled). Our 18 yr old son has also been receiving SS survivor's benefits based on my husband's earning record since his death. I applied for, and was turned down for widow's benefits based on caring for our disabled son.
I understand that DAC benefit amounts are based on Parent PIA at full retirement age. What if parent (mom) begins drawing retirement benefits at 62 but still works and her payment is offset by the income, does adult child's DAC get reduced? Thank you for your work in this area helping families.
What would be the best way to maximize an adult child with a disability's (Down syndrome) social security payments upon the mother and father's passing? What percent of the mother and father's SS payments will the disabled adult receive?
Thank you for your response!
Hi, it is surprisingly difficult to find accurate and understandable information on Survivor Benefits for Disabled Adult Children. It appears that my DAC would eventually get 75% of "something" related to my own retirement benefit. If I claim this year at age 62 instead of my Full Retirement Age (66 and a half), and take a reduced retirement benefit, is my DAC's eventual Survivor Benefit reduced accordingly? And likewise, if I wait until 70 to claim, will my DAC's eventual Survivor Benefit go up to 75% of that fully increased benefit amount?
greetings ,, I have a blind disabled child since childhood and receive a benefit from my husband who was disabled since my son was a child ,,, my son received a continuity of my husband's benefit when he turned 18 years old I claimed it and I also disabled myself now that my son is an adult ,,,Well, my son is legally blind from birth and they applied the special optic bilateral atrophy law SS, they froze the right of protection for the blind of social security ,,, hey I ask you ,,my son would qualify to receive the 2 benefit of his father and mine his mother ,now,,
greetings thank you for answering, but I am already requesting the benefit of adult child and social security sent me to fill some documents of work history made before 22 years of age ,,, and also sent me to fill a document on the record of work as an adult, these 2 documents establish whether I pass above or below the lucrative substance and establish the right to the benefit of blind legal impediment since I was a child before I turned 22, because they told me that I had to fill out another document that is equivalent to the right of continuity that I received as a child beca
How would this situation play out for a Disabled Adult Child: Neither of the parents are currently filed for benefits. My understanding is that at least one would need to file before the DAC could receive SSDI benefits based on the parent's record. Ideally, the father would file now because the mother has a higher PIA and would like her to delay until her age 70. It is also probably fair to assume that the mother will outlive the father.
The Father Files Now: DAC’s SSDI benefit will be 50% of the father’s PIA
Hi Larry: My 28 year old disabled (from birth) daughter currently receives a Medicaid(?) payment of approximately $700/month plus food stamps of~ $140/month. My 62 year old wife is considering drawing social security now for health reasons.
How do I find out the impact of this action on my daughter's monthly income. AlLso, I was always the breadwinner and my potential Social Security benefit is substantially higher than my wife's. When I start drawing will social security my daughters benefit payment go up?
