Find out for FREE if your family member qualifies for Disabled Adult Child benefits
A lot of people who’ve had disabilities since childhood depend on their parents for support.
But when a parent retires or dies – or perhaps becomes disabled themselves – family life can change dramatically.
If you or a family member is facing this stress and uncertainty, the federal government has a program that could provide a measure of stability: Social Security Disability Insurance for a disabled adult child (DAC).
If the given family member has been unable to work since before age 22, and his or her parents worked enough under the Social Security system to qualify for benefits, this could be an option for you.
But Social Security has thousands of rules for disability benefits, and applying for benefits as a disabled adult child comes with particular challenges.
A disability attorney from Nash Disability Law can explain how the system is supposed to work for you. And you pay nothing to learn more.
