    What if You Could Get More Help for Your Child with Special Needs?

    People don’t understand what it’s like to take care of a child with significant health problems unless they do it themselves.

    The demands of your child’s condition can reshape your family life. It takes strength—and money—to provide what your child needs.

    It can be harder to hold down a job, manage your household and deal with your child’s school.

    But there is a source of added financial support and security: Children’s SSI benefits.

    Children’s SSI is a form of Supplemental Security Income. These are Social Security Disability benefits, which are also available to adults who can’t work because of health problems.

    Qualifying for benefits is partly based on your family’s income. And benefits can be hard to get.

    Nothing is more important to the disability lawyers at Empower Disability than helping a child with disabilities get this support.

    We’ve seen how it helps children—and how it helps families live fuller lives.

    What Are the Children’s SSI Qualifications

    What Are the Children’s SSI Qualifications?

    These are the requirements you must meet to show Social Security that your child with special needs qualifies for funding from Children’s SSI:

    • AGE: Your child must be under 18 or age 18 but in high school.
    • DISABILITY: Social Security says your child must have a “marked and severe” limitation that stops them from functioning the same as their peers.
    • TIME: The limitation that changes how your child functions must last at least a year.
    • INCOME: Your family’s income must not exceed certain limits, depending on family size.
    • RESOURCES: Your other financial resources must not exceed certain amounts. This can include bank accounts and some property. But the house where you live doesn’t count toward your total.

    How do you prove that your child meets these children’s SSI qualifications?

    Your application for benefits can include reports from your child’s doctor and information from your child’s school, such as special education Individualized Education Program (IEP) or 504 plan documents.

    Your claim can also include reports from people who know your child and can see how your child’s conditions affect their daily activities.

    But you don’t need to worry about putting it all together yourself.

    This is what the disability attorneys at Empower Disability do.
