Wright Disability Firm : SSI for Children

SSI for Children

Under Social Security Disability law, children with disabilities who are under the age of 18 may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income. The following are requirements for which eligibility may be based for those seeking to file an SSI application for children.

  • A child may not be earning over a certain amount of money per month from working, or receiving other sources of unearned income that exceed the minimum standard set by SSA.
  • A child's disability is anticipated to last or lasts a minimum of a year or longer.
  • A child's impairment must be determined to impose functional limitations that are deemed "marked" or even "extreme."

There are also income and resource restrictions that are applied in these cases; with both earnings from the child one is applying to receive benefits for and that of family members with whom they live being taken into consideration. Conditions such as cystic fibrosis, severe asthma, ADHD, autism, impaired growth, and others are among those for which children may be eligible to receive SSI assistance.

Caring for a disabled child can impose strict limitations on one's time and ability to fully put forth the effort to file SSI claims for children. A qualified social security lawyer or advocate may be a major source of trusted support in these matters.
