Who qualifies for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) as a disabled adult child?

May 22, 2018

The Social Security Administration (SSA) has several qualifications you must meet to qualify for disability benefits as a disabled adult child:

  • You’re 18 or older.
  • You’re not married and have never been married.
  • You’re not working, and have never worked and earned a dollar amount SSA considers to be gainful.
  • One of your parents paid enough Social Security taxes through work and is deceased, or now receives Social Security Disability or retirement benefits.
  • You have medical conditions that have made it impossible for you to work since before age 22.
