Social Security Disability Family Benefits

If you qualify for SSD or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, your minor children may also receive benefits. This financial assistance helps you meet your children's basic needs for food, clothing, shelter and other necessities. SSD family benefits are determined based on how much you have paid into the system through contributions. SSI payments are paid at a fixed rate determined by state regulations.

In addition to minor children, the following individuals may be eligible for benefits:

  • Disabled widows
  • Disabled widowers
  • Adult children with disabilities
  • Caretakers

SSD family benefits claims are handled at local Social Security Administration offices. A skilled lawyer can help you navigate the complicated system and work to get the assistance you deserve.

Attorney Ellene Welsh has been practicing law since 1988. She is well-versed in gathering the necessary documentation, writing persuasive briefs and appealing any claim denials. Drawing on her concrete experience, attention to detail and knowledge of SSD laws, our firm can help you and your family get the benefits you need.
