What family members can receive health insurance when you receive Social Security Disability?

The following are the only members of your family who may be eligible to get disability benefits based on your work:

  • Either spouse (as long as aged 62 years old or older)
  • Spouse, at any age, as long as a child of yours who is younger than 16 years old or disabled is under his/her care
  • Unmarried child (also an adopted child) or even a stepchild or grandchild as long as the child is younger than 18 years old and in elementary or secondary school full time
  • Unmarried child even if aged 18 years old and above as long as she has a disability that started before the age of 22
