Disabled Adult Child (DAC)


Disabled Adult Child Benefits (DAC) Under Social Security Disability

A disabled child who reaches adulthood and cannot work may qualify for Social Security Disability benefits. While these benefits are paid under the parent’s earnings, the adult disabled child must apply for benefits and meet the criteria for a listed impairment.

The disability lawyers of Hoglund, Chwialkowski & Mrozik, PLLC, practice exclusively in Social Security Disability. They are familiar with the rules and required documentation as they apply to children of SSDI recipients, including adult disabled children.

Ohio Child Disability Benefits Attorneys

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) pays benefits to adults who have a disability that began before age 22. It could be a childhood disability or it could be a disabling condition or accident that occurred after the child turned 18.

Disabled Adult Child (DAC) benefits are paid on the earnings record of the parent(s). The child may qualify for benefits if:

• One parent is receiving Social Security retirement or disability benefits
or
• One parent has died and contributed enough into the Social Security system

An adult disabled child who is not eligible for DAC benefits under the parent’s Social Security earnings may qualify for Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

We commonly represent adults who received disability payments as a child but were cut off at age 18. In some cases, disabled adults are even billed by the Social Security Administration for overpayment.

Our skilled attorneys will help prove that your disabled son or daughter cannot find or sustain gainful employment because of his or her disabling condition. We will fight to secure or restore benefits, including any retroactive benefits.
