Knowledgeable Help with SSI Claims for Children
As SSI claims attorneys , we provide dedicated and caring help to children and their parents. We often work with teachers, case workers, physicians, psychologists and other people in your child's life. These professionals can provide us with a clear understanding of the disability's impact on your child's life. With this information, we can bring forward a strong case on your child's behalf to secure the SSI benefits required for their care.
Our law firm can help if your child is blind or has a disability such as:
- Behavioral problems
- Birth defects
- Learning disabilities
The Social Security Administration (SSA) will consider various categories of functionality — motor control, communication, social, health and well-being — in comparison to other children. It must be shown that the child applying for benefits has limited function in those categories. We can prove to the SSA that your child has limited function and requires SSI benefits.
If necessary, we can also assist in modifying your home to fit your child's needs as well as getting them the help and services they need.
What Happens When My Child Turns Eighteen?
When your child reaches his or her eighteenth birthday, the SSA will re-determine if your child is now eligible to receive SSI as an adult. We can help you with this as well as if your adult child was denied benefits.
