What Other Kinds Of Social Security Benefits Might I Be Eligible For?

What Other Kinds Of Social Security Benefits Might I Be Eligible For?

There are several types of benefits a person may get from Social Security. Some of the main types of Social Security claims include:

  • Disabled widow's and widower's benefits are paid to individuals after their spouses have died, who are between 50 and 60 years old, and who have become disabled within seven years after the deaths of their spouses. The late spouse must have worked enough under Social Security to be insured.
  • Disabled adult child benefits go to the disabled children of persons who are deceased or who are drawing Social Security Disability or retirement benefits. The concerned child must have become disabled before age 22 and must never have married. Benefits can be paid after age 22, but the child must show that the disability began before age 22.
  • Disability insurance benefits are benefits you have earned and paid for when you were working and paying taxes before you became disabled. If you pay into Social Security, you have protection — like a private insurance policy. You must have worked and paid enough taxes, and you must prove you are disabled to get Social Security Disability Insurance benefits.
  • Supplemental Security Income benefits are paid to adults who are disabled and who meet other financial requirements. To get SSI benefits, it does not matter whether a person has ever worked in the past.
  • SSI child's disability benefits are SSI benefits for children who have a disability under special disability guidelines. A child must be disabled to get SSI child's disability benefits, and the family income must not exceed certain levels.

At Manring & Farrell, our lawyers handle all of these types of Social Security cases and more.
