How does Social Security decide if my family financially qualifies for childhood SSI benefits?

May 22, 2018

These are the financial qualifications for families seeking Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits for a child:

  • Your family is receiving state assistance, food stamps or Medicaid.
  • Your household income is under certain limits determined on a scale set by Social Security. Generally, you can earn up to $36,000 a year as a single parent.
  • In a two-parent household, both parents can earn together up to $44,000.
