Social Security Disability and Dental Coverage

My ex wife has SSDI; she is the custodial parent. Will her Social Security insurance cover my kids getting braces and pay 100% of the cost?

If she has SSDI, she probably has Medicare already, or is in the 24-month waiting period. Her cost will be covered if she uses a dentist who accepts Medicare.

I don't know that it will cover the kids' braces, though. Call toll free at 1-800-772-1213 and ask them directly. They're very helpful.

I do not believe we can fully answer your question because there are too many details missing. You can contact Social Security:

Generally, children of parents on SSDI (not SSI) receive the same benefits afforded to parents on Medicaid and in most states, some dental care is provided but generally only what is deemed medically necessary. In this light, I do not believe kids braces will be paid for. Sometimes, states also use the amount of support (from other sources) that children receive when applying payment for some services/benefits, so you should check with SS (in your state) to find out what benefits your children will or will not receive.
