SSI For Children

Parents who have a child or children with disabilities are well aware of the challenges that everyone in the family faces. One of the common problems is the cost of raising a child with medical problems. However, there are government programs that can help you with these expenses, if your child qualifies.

At Marsh & Mittas,we can help you apply for much-needed financial relief through the available federal programs of SSI. Schedule a free consultation today to speak with our lawyers about your needs and concerns.

Supplemental Security Income For Minors

Our lawyers work hard to obtain SSI for children. Did you know a child younger than 18 can qualify for SSI, if he or she meets the definition of disability laid out by the Social Security Administration and his or her income and resources fall within the eligible limits? This includes looking at the income and resources of all immediate family members in the same household, if the child lives at home.

It is important to note that the amount of an SSI payment often differs from state to state, because some states add to the SSI payment available. We can discuss with you how Ohio may change your child's SSI payment.

Social Security Disability

If a disability started before someone turned 22, your child may qualify for SSD payments.

For a disabled adult to become entitled to this "child" benefit, one of his or her parents:

  • Must be receiving Social Security retirement or disability benefits, or
  • A parent must have died and have worked long enough under Social Security to qualify for payments.

SSDI benefits are also payable to a disabled adult who received dependent's benefits on a parent's Social Security earnings record prior to age 18.

Our lawyers are committed to helping you explore all child disability benefits, including Medicare, Medicaid and Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP). Contact us today for a free consultation with an experienced lawyer.
