Can My Family Receive SSDI Benefits?

If you are applying for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDIB), you may wonder if your family can receive benefits as well. Fortunately, the answer is yes in many cases.

If you are awarded Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, we may submit an application on your behalf to seek benefits for your children. Your spouse may also be able to obtain benefits.

Maximum family benefits ceilings are in place, however, so you are not guaranteed to get more benefits for each new child who enters your family. It is also important for your spouse, former spouse and children to know that they may potentially be eligible for survivors' benefits at the time of your passing. Visit our section on survivors' benefits to learn more or contact one of our law offices in Ypsilanti, Jackson, Taylor or Adrian, Michigan.

We Are Pleased to Answer Your Questions

We understand that the Social Security Disability laws can be very complex. If you feel you may be eligible for benefits and have questions about Social Security Disability Insurance benefits, we are pleased to offer a free consultation. We also help clients who need Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a benefit paid to people who are age 65 or older, blind or disabled and who have limited income and assets. Since SSI benefits do not require a work history, people who are not eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits may be eligible for SSI benefits.
