Will your child receive money if you get approved for disability ?
This is a fairly common misconception, largely because it happens to be true in a percentage of cases. If an individual gets approved for social security disability, their dependents may (or may not) be eligible to receive auxilliary benefits.
However, this is not guaranteed and really depends on the earnings record of the individual who has been approved for SSD. In other words, whether or not a child may receive benefits will depend on what a parent paid into the system.
