Family SSD Benefits

Experienced Pennsylvania Spousal Social Security Disability Attorneys

A disability can have a lasting serious impact on a family. When the primary caregiver or breadwinner becomes disabled, it can place an enormous burden on the family, particularly for those family members who are dependants. For this reason, the Social Security Administration (SSA) provides family Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) to family members of a disabled individual who qualifies.

Family SSD benefits can seem confusing and overwhelming. We can make it simple for you. Attorney Jennifer Modell of Caroselli, Beachler & Coleman, L.L.C., will speak to you in plain language about the benefits you and your family are entitled to receive. She has guided countless men, women and children throughout Pennsylvania through the process of obtaining benefits, and provided those clients with the advice, support and advocacy they need at every stage.

Benefits For Family Members

Family members of a disabled individual may be entitled to Social Security benefits. There are strict criteria to determine whether or not a family member is eligible for benefits, however, and only certain types of family members can apply:

If your family members qualify for benefits, the maximum amount you can expect to receive for your whole family is 150 to 180 percent of your benefits.
