Dependent Back Pay

If I get back pay, will my dependents get back pay as well? And will they automatically receive payments or do I need to apply for them separately?

Hi mshawn,

Your children may be able to receive auxiliary benefits under your SSDI. They will need to be under 18 (or enrolled fulltime in school), unmarried, and your dependents.
