When Parents Collect Social Security: Webinar

Many parents are thinking about collecting their Social Security retirement benefits and wondering how this will impact their adult child with an intellectual and developmental disability (IDD).

Questions and concerns often arise when parents are planning to collect their own Social Security and they have a son/daughter with disabilities who receives SSI and Medicaid. 

This presentation will explain:

  • Changes in Social Security benefits that occur for a son/daughter with IDD when a parent retires and collects their own Social Security, or if a parent becomes disabled or passes away.  
  • How to get Medicaid from New Jersey after the Medicaid that accompanied SSI is scheduled to end.

What happens if their child with IDD receives Social Security benefits before the age of 18, due to the retirement, disability, or death of a parent.
