Part 2: Can an adult child receive SSDI benefits under you?

Last week, we discussed receiving Social Security benefits for a minor child who is disabled. You may have a child with a disability that will make him or her dependent on you for life. If this is the case, is it possible for you or your child to receive adult benefits that may assist in lifelong care? Fortunately, Social Security disability insurance benefits may be available in West Virginia if your child is still disabled after reaching the age of 18.

As a result, pedestrian accidents are a cause of great concern for residents of West Virginia, as well as across the country.
