One thought on “What if the adult child is already receiving SSI benefits or disability benefits on his or her own record?

    However, a few marriages (for example, to another disabled “adult child”) are considered protected. Higher benefits might be payable and entitlement to Medicare may be possible. If he or she receives benefits as a disabled “adult child,” the benefits generally end if he or she gets married. A disabled “adult child” already receiving SSI benefits or disability benefits on his or her own record should check to see if benefits may be payable on a parent’s earnings record. If a child is age 18 or older, we will evaluate his or her disability the same way we would evaluate the disability for any adult. We send the application to the Disability Determination Services (DDS) in your state that completes the disability decision for us.
