About Social Security Benefits for Children - CNET

Most people don’t think about Social Security as a benefit for children but, for decades, Social Security has paid benefits to children of those who are collecting either their Social Security retirement (or SS disability) benefits. There are, of course, eligibility requirements which the child must meet. For example, the child must be a minor, under age 18, or 19 if still in high school or, if older, must be disabled with a disability condition that started before age 22. There is also a maximum amount of benefits which can be paid on a parent’s record. Nevertheless, the eligible children of a parent who is collecting Social Security can also receive benefits, and this CNET article by Katie Teague explains how. Click here to read more.

Also, if you’re unsure about how these basics apply to you, or if you have any questions about your individual situation under Social Security, note that the AMAC Foundation provides a free-to-the-public advisory service to help Americans navigate the complexities of this program. Learn more about it here…
