The highly-touted young custodian recently ended a similar loan spell at Division One side Coventry City and joins The Spireites for a four-week loan spell.
The Saltergate club have been left with just one fit goalkeeper following the leg injury to number one Carl Muggleton.
He faces up to six weeks on the sidelines after suffering a double stress fracture of the fibula.
Fellow goalkeeper Andy Richmond has been deputising for Muggleton in Chesterfield's goal but will now likely make way for the more-experienced Williams.
Spireites manager Dave Rushbury told the club's official website: "We must be doing something right because Manchester United don't let players out on loan unless they are confident they will be properly looked after.
"We have had the situation in hand following Carl Muggleton's injury and are delighted to welcome Ben Williams now that he is available to come on loan to us.
"Young Andy Richmond is a good potential goalkeeper and has been kept fully informed about the situation.
"He will gain from his experience of league team football - as part of his ongoing development."
