Many people are not aware that, under certain circumstances, disabled adult children may be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits. There are certain criteria that need to be met, and the legal issues can sometimes be difficult to understand. Be sure that you seek the advice of a reliable New York SSDI attorney.
At Dennis Kenny Law, we represent clients throughout New York state in a broad range of complex Social Security issues. We understand the process of obtaining benefits for disabled adult children and what the Social Security Administration looks for in evaluating these applications. We diligently pursue every possible option in an effort to secure all available benefits.
Understanding SSDI Benefits For Adult Children
If a child was disabled before age 22, he or she may be eligible for child's benefits under Social Security. The child must be unmarried, be over the age of 18, have a disability that began prior to his or her 22nd birthday and his or her parent must be disabled or deceased. The child need not have paid into Social Security, because the case is treated as a child's benefits claim, and benefits are paid based on the parent's earning record.
We will take the time to explain all of the requirements surrounding your eligibility for Social Security Disability benefits. If you are denied benefits, we will give you an honest assessment of your case and pursue an appeal if appropriate to your case. If not, we can help you seek alternative benefits, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid and any other available benefits.
