Types of Disability Benefits
Social Security Disability benefits are available to disabled workers and their children, as well as the spouses and family members of deceased disability recipients. The types of benefits available include:
- Child Benefits
If you’re a parent who has worked and paid into Social Security and you’re receiving disability benefits, your child may also be eligible for additional benefits. And if you’re a widow or widower receiving death benefits, your child may qualify for benefits in addition to the benefits you’re receiving.
- Disability Benefits
If you’re suffering from a medical condition that leaves you unable to perform the work you used to for more than 12 months, or your condition is expected to result in death, you may be eligible for disability benefits.
- Death Benefits
If you’re the surviving family member of a worker who held a job and worked for at least 10 years prior to his or her death, you may be eligible for Social Security Disability death benefits. The compensation paid through these benefits is based on the Social Security retirement benefits your loved one would have been eligible to receive.
- Spousal Benefits
You may be eligible for Social Security Disability spousal benefits if you’re:
- a surviving spouse who is at least 62 years old.
- caring for a disabled child or a child under age 16.
- are divorced and were previously married to someone eligible for disability benefits for at least 10 years, you’re at least 62 years old, and you’re currently unmarried.
You may be eligible for Medicare if you’re under age 65 and you’ve been approved for Social Security Disability benefits. In most cases, you must also have received disability benefits for at least 24 months, although exceptions apply if you’re suffering from a condition listed on the SSA’s List of Compassionate Allowances.
