The requirements are:
- The disability occurred before the child’s 25th birthday.
- The child cannot provide for his or her own support. For example, because it can not work because of his disability.
On the website of the Bundesverband für körper- und mehrfachbehinderte Menschen e. V. (bvkm) you will find an information sheet on child benefits for adult children with disabilities.
