§ 174. Disability Benefits - Benefits for Others That Are Linked To


When an individual is entitled to disability insurance benefits, his or her spouse, divorced spouse, or child may be entitled to derivative benefits on the worker's account. Since an individual is not entitled to disability insurance benefits until he or she has filed an application these derivative benefits, too, must await the worker's application.
