The Financial Support You Need

Raising a child who lives with serious physical or mental disabilities can be challenging. Often financial burdens associated with their care can also be overwhelming. Fortunately, you can find support through Supplemental Security Income benefits. Social Security Income, or SSI, is a needs-based program that provides financial support to children, up to age 18, with disabilities. These benefits can help you provide the best quality of life for your child.

Is My Child Eligible for Benefits?

In order to qualify for Supplemental Security Income benefits, your child must have a medical or psychological disability that makes it difficult for them to care for themselves, interact with others, learn and use information, complete basic tasks or use fine motor skills. Their condition must also have affected your child for at least one year or it must be projected to last for a year or more. Your family must also have an income below a certain level to qualify.
Some common conditions that qualify children for Supplemental Security Income benefits include cerebral palsy, bipolar disorder, ADHD, scoliosis, epilepsy, juvenile diabetes and more.

Fighting for Your Child

Like with other Social Security programs, filing for Supplemental Security Income benefits for your child can be a long, complicated process. With assistance from a skilled attorney from The Law Center, you don't have to go through the claims process alone. We will help determine your child's eligibility and fight for the benefits they deserve. We will guide you through relevant paperwork and help make the application process easy and stress-free.
If you've been denied Supplemental Security Income benefits, we will help you appeal your case and provide the representation you need to ensure your child receives the care and financial aid they need.
