You could be counting on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits to help your child with a disability. When your child’s application is denied, it feels devastating.
Raising a child with physical or mental impairments is incredibly demanding. Disability benefits help your family afford much-needed therapy, medical equipment or tutoring.
So don’t give up hope!
Most people get denied the first time they apply for childhood SSI.
In fact, childhood disability cases come with particular challenges, such as proving that a learning disability or attention disorder is severe enough to warrant benefits.
At Nash Disability Law, we strongly urge you to consider appealing the decision to the Social Security Administration. Appeals are when many people win benefits.
At this stage in the process, it can make a big difference to have a disability attorney who builds the strongest case for your child. And it doesn’t cost anything to try. We evaluate your child’s case for free. We don’t charge a fee unless you win.
The first thing to know about appealing your childhood SSI denial is that you need to move fast.
