Does My Child with Autism Qualify for SSI?

The trouble with government-run benefits like children’s SSI is that they deny most people who apply. Our disability lawyers for children know what you need to get your claim through the process. We’ve helped thousands of people for over 30 years.

In fact, we’ve helped more Chicago area people get benefits than any other law firm.

You can start with a free claim consultation. And you pay no attorney fee until you win benefits.

These are the basic rules to qualify for SSI for a child with autism:

  1. Your child must have a “marked and severe” functional limitation. That means autism interferes with their ability to function like other children their age.
  2. Your child must have lived with this limiting form of autism for 12 months already—or it clearly will continue beyond 12 months.
  3. You family has limited income and other financial resources. Generally, if your family qualifies for state assistance, food stamps or Medicaid, you will financially qualify for childhood SSI.
  4. If you’re not receiving one of those welfare benefits, and you are working, your income must not exceed certain levels.
  5. Your income limits to qualify for SSI depend on where you fit on income charts from the Social Security Administration (SSA), which include factors such as whether you are a single-parent or two-parent family.
