My mentally ill disabled son, since age 19, receives the following from Social Security:
$442.00 SSDI, own record
$510.00 SSDI, father's (my) record
My wife was also receiving a retirement benefit of $1264 from my record, but she has just switched to her own record.
1. Will my son now automatically receive a higher SSDI, the 50% of my FRA benefit ($1264)?
2. Will this amount be in addition to his own $442 SSDI?
