Disability for Children
Children younger than the age of 18 who have disabilities may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income. If the child meets the definition of disabled, per the Social Security's definition, and his or her income or resources fall within the eligibility requirements, then monthly benefits may be available. The income and resources of the family members living with the child will also be evaluated.
When you contact Disability Action Advocates about your child's situation, you will be enlisting the help of a legal team that has unparalleled experience and skill in preparing disability claims. We have helped thousands and thousands of clients in the preparation of claims, through the application process and during
appeals and hearings, and we welcome the opportunity to help you and your family.
