Can Your Child Receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI)?

Published on April 14th, 2021

Children under the age of 18 can receive SSI if they meet the requirements set forth by the Social Security Administration and there are limited income and resources available in the household. The SSA defines a disability as:

  • A child having a physical or mental condition that seriously limits their abilities and
  • The condition must have lasted, or be expected to last, at least 1 year or result in death.

If your disability case is approved, SSI will provide monthly cash payments to help meet the basic needs of your disabled child.

Do You Need An Experienced Child Disability Attorney?

Securing disability benefits for children can be a complicated process and confusing to those who have never dealt with the Social Security Administration before. Obtaining an SSI lawyer for your child will put you in the best position possible and make sure that your claims process is handled properly.

Supplemental Security Income disability benefits are means-tested and the SSA considers family income to belong to the child, making it increasingly difficult to be approved. The SSA requires a substantial amount of evidence, including, but not limited to, medical records and school records to determine the disabled child’s level of functioning. Our lawyers know the system at both the local and federal levels and understand what it takes to win your claim.
