When Can My Family Receive DIB Benefits?
If you are applying for Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB), you may wonder if your family can receive benefits as well. Fortunately, the answer is yes in many cases.
If you are awarded 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 call our firm at (734) 485-7000. We have 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 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 Disability Insurance Benefits (DIB) may be eligible for SSI benefits.
