Helping Georgia Dependents Receive SSDI Benefits For Over 30 Years
The Social Security Administration has financial options for the children and spouses of people who are dependent on someone who has a disability. Through Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), you may have the right to receive monthly benefits payments of your own.
At Rogers, Hofrichter & Karrh, LLC, we can help you determine whether you qualify for benefits as a dependent – and how to receive them. Our disability law firm has a reputation for helping the people of Atlanta who have disabilities since 1993.
What To Know About SSD Dependent Benefits
Every eligible dependent can receive up to 50% of the monthly amount that the disabled person receives in SSDI benefits. There is a limit: A family’s total amount may not exceed 150% of the disabled beneficiary’s monthly SSDI benefits. Not every relative qualifies. The only family members who may collect dependents’ SSD benefits are:
- Children (including stepchildren or grandchildren) under age 18
- Unmarried children age 18 or over who have a disability that began before age 22
- Spouses who are caring for a child who is under age 16 or who has a disability
- Spouses age 62 or over
- Former spouses who were married to the dependent for 10 years or more and are age 62 or over
You stand a much greater chance of recovering benefits if you work with an experienced SSD dependent benefits attorney. Our team, for example, has handled more than 6,000 cases for people with disabilities and their loved ones across Georgia.
