How long does a child receive Social Security benefits from a disabled parent?
18 years old
Generally, children will receive dependent SSDI benefits until they reach the age of 18 years old. The benefit will end the month before their 18th birthday.
What happens when a disabled child reaches 18?
If your child receives SSI (or SSDI as a minor on a parent’s work record), then when your child turns 18, the Social Security Administration will automatically review his or her file. The SSA uses a different test to determine benefits eligibility for adults than for minors.
How does a disabled child’s Social Security benefits affect a noncustodial parent’s child support obligation?
If a non-custodial parent receives SSDI, then the court takes the amount of disability benefits into consideration when determining how much child support they need to provide. Thus, these disability benefits are taken into account when determining the non-custodial parent’s child support obligation.
Do you have to pay child support if your on disability?
Will I Still Be Responsible for Paying Child Support? If you become disabled and begin to receive disability benefits, your obligation to pay child support does not stop. You will still be required to pay the child support that has been mandated by the courts.
Can you get child support from someone on disability?
The law recognises a duty to support a child over 18 that has a physical or mental disability and can make a parent pay maintenance that is necessary to financially support that disabled child. It does not matter whether the disability existed before the child was 18 or develops after the child is 18.
