Disabled Adult Children Benefits Lawyer in Florida
Are you or someone you love an adult child with a long-term disability? The Social Security Administration offers special disability benefits to any adult child who has suffered a disability since childhood or before age 22. It needs to be a disability preventing the adult child from working and generating an income for themselves.
The eligibility requirements are as follows:
- The adult child must be 18 years of age or older
- The adult child cannot be married
- The disability must have started before age 22
- One of the adult child’s parents must have social security work credits or benefits
Any disabled adult child satisfying these eligibility requirements may be entitled to receive benefits from the Social Security Disability Insurance of their parents. In other words, a parent’s work history and income earnings will help determine if a disabled adult child qualifies for federal benefits.

When Do You Need to Hire a Disabled Adult Children Benefits Lawyer in Florida?
If you meet the basic eligibility requirements, the Social Security Administration will want to determine if you have a medically determinable impairment lasting at least one year or longer. This would be an impairment that renders you unable to conduct substantial work duties to generate a steady income for yourself.
A significant physical or mental impairment that prevents you from working will entitle you to receive Social Security disability benefits under the law. The amount you’re entitled to receive is calculated based on your parent’s primary insurance amount, which is the amount your parent would receive if they took full retirement at age 67.
There are a lot of complex legal and mathematical calculations which need to be made here. That is why you are better off hiring a disabled adult children benefits lawyer who can navigate the legal hurdles on your behalf and help you submit an accurate and evidence-based disability claim to the Social Security Administration. Then you’ll have a much greater chance of approval for your application.

Does the adult child need a work history to qualify for Social Security disability benefits?
No, the adult child does not need a work history because the Disabled Adult Children’s program allows an adult child to use their parent’s work history as a determining factor for eligibility. Therefore, as long as the parent has acquired enough work credits, the adult child can use them to activate their disability benefits. However, the adult child cannot currently work or earn more than $1,000 per month to qualify for the benefits.
