My name is***** and I will be helping you with your question today. This is for informational purposes only and does not establish an attorney client relationship. Yes she can, she is eligible for up to 50% of your benefit as long as you have officially adopted her as your child. Your child can get benefits if they’re your biological child, adopted child, or dependent stepchild. To get benefits, a child must have:(1) A parent who’s disabled or retired and entitled to Social Security benefits; or(2) A parent who died after having worked long enough in a job where they paid Social Security taxes.The child must also be:(1) Unmarried;(2) Younger than age 18;(3) 18-19 years old and a full-time student (no higher than grade 12); or(4) 18 or older and disabled. (The disability must have started before age 22)See link: Please let me know if you have any further questions and please positively rate my answer if satisfied.
