Your Adult Child Can Receive Disability Benefits

Disabilities that strike early in life create a sense of uncertainty about the future and leave you worrying over unanswered questions. If your child is unable to work, how will he or she get by? What options are available to help your child cover expenses both now and in the future?

At Davis, Davis & Patterson, our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined experience practicing disability law, and we are here to help. We will carefully examine all details of your situation and provide a straightforward evaluation of the options available to you such as adult child disability benefits, children's SSI or another form of disability such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

All disability cases are handled on contingency. We don't get paid until you do.

Adult Child Disability Benefits

If a deceased parent was covered by Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) at the time his or her child was disabled, that child may qualify for disability benefits. The disability must have commenced before the child reached the age of 22 and the deceased parent must have had an active SSDI policy at the time of his or her death.

Any medical or psychological problems will qualify as a disability, as long as they prevent a person from working 40 hours per week. A few examples include:

  • Anxiety
  • Back injuries
  • Blood transfusion injuries
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Birth defects
  • Car wreck injuries
  • Diabetes
  • Depression
  • Epilepsy
  • Mental retardation
  • Neck injuries
  • Schizophrenia
  • Thyroid disease
  • Traumatic brain injuries (TBI)
