Total disability is not just something that occurs to those who are elderly or who have otherwise made significant contributions to Social Security. The Social Security Administration (SSA) realizes this and created eligibility for Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits for young people.If a person who is at least 18 years old can prove that he or she become totally disabled anytime before he or she turned 22 years old, he or she can apply for SSD benefits. He or she must have had a parent who:

  • Died while fully insured by Social Security
  • Is currently receiving Social Security retirement benefits
  • Is currently receiving SSD

If a person under age 22 meets those requirements, he or she can receive SSD benefits based on the parents’ contributions to Social Security. This provides certain advantages over applying for SSI benefits in that SSD:

  • Provides more substantial financial support than SSI
  • Is not means tested
