    Lawyers agree


    Answered . Under Social Security regulations, where a beneficiary is eligible for more than one type of benefit, only the larger one is payable. It is unlikely that you will qualify for SSDI both on your own account and that of your deceased father. Social Security survivor's benefits for children are for dependent (minor) children, who aren't old enough to have been workers with a Social Security account of their own
