It could be you or a member of your family. When medical impairments starting in childhood make it impossible for someone to work, very often they depend on support from their parents.
Then a parent retires, develops their own disability or dies.
If your family faces this situation, you might be wondering where to turn. You’re worried about paying for housing and transportation, or putting food on the table for yourself or a loved one.
Social Security has a benefits program that could provide financial relief.
When parents worked and paid enough Social Security taxes to qualify for retirement or disability benefits, their adult children with medical impairments may qualify for disability benefits, too.
But you have to meet certain conditions. Proving that an adult child qualifies for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) comes with unique challenges.
For example, if you’re applying as a disabled adult child yourself, you have to show that you had a disability before age 22. That can be difficult if several years have passed since you were that age. With time, medical records get harder to track down.
Most people get turned down when they first apply for all kinds of disability benefits. But at Nash Disability Law, we know Chicagoland people are tough and full of grit and determination.
