When a child turns 16 question

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on Tue, 12/05/2017 - 09:40

My husband has terminal cancer and is receiving SSDI benefits. As a caregiver to our daughter, I am also receiving a benefit as is she. I have just learned that as a caregiver, my benefit will stop when she turns 16. My question is.... Will her amount go up since I'm no longer receiving a benefit or does my amount just go back into the system? Thank you in advance.

Hi there,
I'm sorry to hear about that! Your daughter may continue to receive the same amount of money.
