If you qualify for Title 2 benefits, then your minor children and spouse may be eligible to receive a monthly check. These benefits to your family members are called “auxiliary benefits.”
For your children to receive monthly benefits, your children have to be: under 18, an adult who was found to be disabled before he/she turned 22, or a high school student under 19.
Your spouse can get monthly benefits if he/she is: 62 or older or has a child in their care who is under 16 or disabled.
(If you get Title 16 benefits, there are no auxiliary benefits available).
