Social Security Important As Students Go Back To School

School is back in session and if you are a child of a disabled, retired, or deceased worker, you can receive benefits until the age of 18. Jack Myers with the Social Security Administration says that these benefits can continue until age 19 if your child is still a full time high school student.

 

 

That form can be found at www.ssa.gov. If you have a student who is learning how to drive, they will need their social security card.  If you’ve lost one or it needs replacing, Myers says that’s an easy fix.

 

 

Myers says there is a form that you need to fill out. You will only need to provide identification for the minor.

 

 

Disability should always be something that you are aware of—especially if something happens.

 

 

Jack Myers appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
