Millions of Americans rely on Social Security disability benefits to pay for their monthly living expenses. What many people do not realize, however, is that the Social Security disability recipients themselves are not the only ones relying on this important government aid. Indeed, the family members of these benefits recipients are also reliant on disability money to survive in many cases. The government recognizes this fact, and for this reason, legal dependents of Social Security disability recipients may be eligible for additional benefits.
Dependent family members could be eligible to receive additional Social Security disability benefits of up to half the amount that the disabled person is receiving. This money can make a very big financial difference a family's life; therefore, it may behoove SSD recipients to seek such benefits.
