According to the SSDI, a child that is born outside of marriage may qualify
for Social Security benefits on a patient's record. To receive these
benefits, a child must have a parent who is disabled or required and is
entitled to collect Social Security benefits or a parent who died after
working long enough in a job where he or she paid Social Security taxes.
Children are not permitted to collect on a parents' policy if they
are married or over the age of 18. Children can collect if they are over
18 and are still a full-time student that has not yet graduated high school.
Also, if a child is disabled and over the age of 18, he or she may still
be able to collect benefits. If you want more information about SSDI benefits
