If you have a child who becomes disabled before he turns 22, the child can eventually get benefits off of your Social Security earnings. If a parent dies, becomes disabled, or starts receiving retirement, the disabled child can receive benefits on his parent’s earnings if you prove he is disabled before he turned 22.
When you are applying for disability benefits, Social Security needs a lot of information. It seems an overwhelming task to get the information together. Plus, you're applying for disability, so you're probably not feeling great to begin with. If you were feeling well enough to get together all of this stuff, you could probably work, right? Let's see if I can take some of the mystery out of it.
People tend to generally know about Social Security retirement. They are aware that disability exists and maybe that it can be difficult to get. Beyond that, people don't know a lot about benefits they can get from Social Security that can really help when planning for their future.
