Yes, your spouse can collect Social Security Disability benefits based on a disabled claimant’s record if two conditions are met.  First, let me clarify that this only applies to Title 2 Social Security Disability benefits and not Title 16 Supplemental Security Income benefits.  In order to collect, your spouse cannot be employed and must be caring for your child who is age 16 or younger.
