If a parent receives Social Security benefits can the minor children receive money too?
If a parent receives Social Security Disability (SSDI) or retirement benefits, his or her minor children can also receive a monthly benefit until age 18, or age 19 if the child is still in elementary or high school. Extended benefits terminate at the end of the school year, or two months after the child's 19th birthday, whichever occurs first.

Social Security is a federal program; the rules are the same regardless of your state of residence.

There are different rules for Supplemental Security Income (SSI), a form of welfare for disabled people and those over 65 who have little other income and few assets. People frequently confuse SSDI and SSI. SSI rules and payments vary somewhat by state.
