Hi ... My name’s LaneIf you are on SSDI (Social Security Disablility insurance), then yes, a dependent will generate an additional benefit, until that child turns 18.If you’re on SSI (Supplemental Security Income) the benefit that’s means tested - comes with Medicaid - and you didn’t behave enough work record to get SSDI, then, so sorry, there are no dependent benefits
