Re: age and ssi

I dont think it matters, I think the deciding factor is if you are indeed disabled. My husband is 45 and just got approved for SSDI, he had enough credits but he would have gotten 5 months of SSI that the SSDI doesnt pay but our assets were too much. I am sure someone will give you some great information on here. It's a great site. Good Luck

I don't think it does, but I could be wrong.. You get SSI if you don't have enough credits for SSDI I think

Re: age and ssi

Age is not a factor it is based first on being disabled if under full retirement age then income and assets. A disabled infant can collect SSI if the parents of the child's income and assets are below the specified levels. A 95 year old person can collect both SS and SSI if income and assets are below specified levels. Same with an adult who worked for many years before becoming disabled. Someone who did not work enough quarters to collect SS will get only SSI unless they are the adult child of a retired or disabled adult who is collecting regular SS or SSDI. The most someone can get from the any combination of SSI regular SS or SSDI or DAC ( disabled adult child ) for this year is $709.

Re: age and ssi

Correct you will get half of your parents if you qualify. At that amount you will not qualify for any SSI as the amount you are going to receive puts you way over the income limits for getting any SSI. However if the amount you where going to get from your dad was less than $709 you would get the difference in another check from SSI so you would receive $709 as long as there is no other countable income. DAC benefits are better for a young person because if you are able to work at a sheltered workshop or some other similar type work where they have job coaches for those with disabilities DAC stays the same with the ups and downs of the pay. SSI will change every single month as your income varies. Good luck getting approved as a DAC.
