If I file for disability successfully will my 20 year old college student get any benefits? Thanks.
Unfortunately, Social Security benefits payable to children of disabled beneficiaries ends at age 18 or 19, if they are still in high school. There are no benefits payable for college students. Ronald Reagan ended student benefits for college-age children.
In this case, your son or daughter could only receive benefits if they themselves filed on the basis of a disabling condition.
