Children under the age of 18 may receive SSDI (Title II) benefits based on their parent(s) earnings history until they turn 18, or if still in school, the benefits will stop at age 19.
However, if the child has a disability, benefits will continue under Disabled Adult Child (DAC) status once he or she turns 18.
When you reach the full retirement age, your SSDI will be converted to Old Age and Survivors Benefits. Note: This version of WorkWORLD will not provide the correct results for this situation.
If you are also a recipient of Supplemental Security Income, see Age-SSI .
