I have two children. I was approved for SSDI. I understand my dependent children are also eligible for benefits, typically 1/2 of my PIA. My SSDI = $800, so I should receive $400 ($200 for each child) for my two children. My question is how does social security deposit my children's benefit? I have direct deposit for my benefit. Will the benefit for my children be combined with my benefit and be deposited? Or, will each child get $200 deposited separately to my account? Or, will there simply be one $400 payment for both children deposited to my account for the children? I suppose my question is how many deposits will be made to my bank account....One, two, or three? Will the backpay for my children also come separately or be combined with mine? Thank you.
