Your family’s financial situation helps determine if your child can receive SSI disability benefits.
Special Rules for Your Child
Unlike adults, children do not need to prove they are unable to work. The Social Security Administration has a Listing of Medical Impairments for children. Many diseases affect children differently than adults and some diseases are only found for children, such as developmental disorders and growth impairments.
In addition to medical records, the Social Security Administration also reviews school records and reports to determine the child’s level of functioning.
If you have questions about SSI or think your child my qualify for SSI benefits, contact Nash Disability Law for help.
