Applying for Child SSI Benefits
For parents of children living with disabilities, it is of paramount importance that their children receive proper medical attention to help them experience lives as fulfilling and active as possible. Unfortunately, these services are extremely expensive for some families. In cases like this, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is available to help offset the expenses that are often associated with child disabilities. Families may secure these critical funds until the child is 18 years of age, at which time they may reapply for either SSI or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).
Child SSI Benefits Eligibility
Applying for SSI benefits can be complicated, and many people are also denied these benefits. An experienced SSI lawyer can be critical to ensuring that your application is both complete and accurate, thereby increasing the likelihood that it is accepted. When income requirements are met, the following disabilities are commonly eligible for child SSI benefits:
- Severe Scoliosis
- Cognitive Impairments
- Organic Mental Disease
- Disorders Of The Spine
