How are Benefits Distributed to Dependents?

In order for your dependents to qualify to receive SSD benefits, they must fit a very specific set of criteria. So long as they qualify, these dependents will usually receive about half of the disabled or deceased parent’s supplemental income, distributed amongst all dependents.

  • In order to qualify for SSD benefits, your dependents must be:
  • The child of a parent who is deceased, disabled, or retired
  • Under the age of 18 years old
  • Not have graduated from high school

Because the social security disability application process require a high degree of organization, specificity, and detail to complete correctly, it is not advised that you attempt to apply without first consulting with a professional who is experienced with the process. At Harbison & Kavanagh, we understand how important obtaining social security benefits can be to your life. We work hard to ensure your application is not one of the 65% of applications that is declined.
