    I would say since he is the biological father ,yes.

    At any rate it would not hurt to apply.

    Your child can get benefits if he or she is your biological child, adopted child or dependent stepchild. (In some cases, your child also could be eligible for benefits on his or her grandparents’ earnings.)

    To get benefits, a child must have:

    •A parent(s) who is disabled or retired and entitled to Social Security benefits; or
    •A parent who died after having worked long enough in a job where he or she paid Social Security taxes.
    The child also must be:

    •Unmarried;
    •Younger than age 18;
    •18-19 years old and a full-time student (no higher than grade 12); or
    •18 or older and disabled. (The disability must have started before age 22.)

    Is this a real situation or homework? We don't do homework.

    I would tend to think no, but you would need to read your LTD policy to find out for sure.

    I think you're looking at it the wrong way. You can call customer service if you are truly confused.

    Do you realize that if the child gets benefits it will have no impact at all on your benefits?
