Do children receive benefits if their parents is permanently disabled?
Asked Oct 31, 2010, 10:46 AM
I recently applied for social security disability benefits for a physical problem that will not go away. My doctor urged me to apply, so I am sure I will receive the benefits. I have been doing some reading on the SSA website and it appears that my children might receive money as well. Does anyone have experience with this? I am married, my husband works, I used to be a teacher, and we have two children. Since my husband works, will this affect my children by not allowing them to receive a benefit? I'm confused and would like to hear from people in a similar situation. Thanks!
