Social Security Disability Insurance: Eligibility and How to Get It
It isn’t just you alone who can get benefits—your children can also be eligible for SSI and SSDI. Advocacy services like DECO Recovery Management can help in getting Social Security Disability for children. For SSDI, children dependents can receive auxiliary benefits; as long as they are disabled, they will receive 50% of their parent’s disability amount. However, your family may not receive more than your family’s maximum family benefit, which is usually 150% of your disability benefits. As for SSI, if your child isn’t receiving SSDI auxiliary benefits and your family income is low, you can apply for your child to receive SSI until they are 18.
