Definition of the Week: Adult

Adult: In Utah "the period of minority extends in males and females to the age of 18 years; but all minors obtain their majority by marriage." Utah Code 15-2-1

In regard to payment of social security benefits, the term "adult" may refer to an individual who has graduated from high school or is older than eighteen (18) years of age, whichever is later, but in all cases an individual who is nineteen (19) years of age or older is considered an adult.
