Understanding the Criteria for Adult Disabled Child Benefits

Adult disabled child benefits are designed to provide financial support to the disabled children, over the age of 18, of people who have paid into Social Security. The eligibility rules for these benefits are extremely complex. Basically, an applicant needs to be able to prove the following:

  • He or she is unable to earn a substantial income through work as a result of a qualifying physical, mental or emotional condition that he or she has had since before the age of 22.
  • At least one of his or her parents has worked enough quarters to qualify for Social Security benefits and has since died, retired or become disabled from working.

If your child is disabled and in financial need but not eligible for adult disabled child benefits, he or she may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. If your child is already receiving SSI, on the other hand, you should know that SSD may provide more benefits.
