Manring & Farrell

Is your child eligible for disabled adult child benefits?

As a resident of Ohio tasked with the care of a disabled adult child, you know that expenses can stack up quickly. Today, Manring & Farrell will discuss the possibility of social security benefits, how disabled adult children can be eligible, and whether or not your child may be eligible.

The first thing to note is that there are certain restrictions that determine whether an adult child can draw from social security benefits. Of those, one includes the stipulation that the child must have become disabled before turning 22 years old. Payments do continue after that age, however. An adult child must also be over the age of 18. The second stipulation is that the individual must have never been married before.

Disabled adult child benefits also apply to disabled adult children whose parents are deceased, or are withdrawing retirement or social security benefits. This is because the adult child will usually be relying on the parent's social security benefits rather than their own. Even in cases in which a disabled adult child has a work history, it likely isn't as long as yours. Because of that, they wouldn't be able to receive as much money as they would if they were eligible for benefits under your social security.

Do you have any remaining questions about the potential social security benefits that your adult child may be eligible for? Take a look at our webpage, linked here. We discuss various social security benefits and how they can aid you and your child through difficult financial times.
