When a parent receives Social Security Disability benefits, his or her child may also be eligible to receive benefits. Typically, the child stops receiving benefits at age 18.
Where a child is disabled before the age of 22, however, he or she may be eligible to receive benefits as an adult provided that he or she has a qualifying disability. The Social Security regulations define disability as the inability to perform any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or that has lasted or can be expected to last for at least 12 consecutive months. Disabled adults between age 18 and 22 can receive benefits under the earnings record of a disabled, retired or deceased parent.
