DI 10115.010 Other Childhood Disability Benefits (CDB) Factors of Entitlement

A. Policy - Disability Determination for Disabled Minor Child to Entitle Mother or Father

If a disability determination is necessary for a child age 15 1/2 to age 18 in order to entitle a mother or father, follow the instructions in DI 11020.060C and RS 00203.085 for instructions on childhood disability development and determination. Also, see RS 00208.001 for instructions relating to requirements for entitlement to mother's/father's benefits.

B. Policy - Disability Determination for Disabled Minor Child to Enable Continuation of Child Benefits at Age 18

When a disability determination is made to continue a child's entitlement upon attaining age 18 as a CDB, the disability determination must be posted to the Master Beneficiary Record (MBR).When this has been completed the Entitlement Eligibility function of the Title II Redesign Release 3 will evaluate data for benefit entitlement status and identify benefit conversion conditions.

C. Policy - Entitlement to a Child's Benefit, Another Type Benefit and Benefits on More Than One E/R

The following criteria apply to entitlement to a child’s benefit, another type benefit and benefits on more than one Earnings Record (E/R):

  • A child age 18 or over and disabled may, at the same time, be entitled to a child's insurance benefit and another benefit (see RS 00203.060 where a child is entitled to child's insurance benefits on more than one (E/R)).

  • If the other benefit is not a Disability Benefit (DIB) or Retirement Benefit (RIB), the child is eligible to receive only the higher benefit.

  • If the other benefit is DIB or RIB, the child's benefit is reduced by the amount of the DIB or RIB. See RS 00203.025 for amount of child’s benefits.
