    How long does it take to process kid's benefits? I won my SSDI case and got my benefits but I have to go in and show his birth certificate, etc. They said that I need to apply for his benefits.

    That doesn't make sense to me. I thought that I would get his the same time as mine? He is not disabled, but I understand that we get benefits for kids under 18- to include back benefits.

    Does anyone know?

    I was told it would be 30 to 90 days. I'm still waiting for mine because of my son being autistic.
