How does Social Security decide if my child is disabled?

May 22, 2018

For the purposes of childhood SSI disability benefits, the Social Security Administration has a strict definition of “disabled”:

  • Your child has “marked and severe functional limitations,” which means they are unable to function on the same level as other children the same age.
  • Your child’s impairment has lasted or is expected to last at least a year.

At Nash Disability Law, we will evaluate your child’s situation for free.
