Applying For Benefits On Behalf Of Your Child
If you are the parent of a disabled, behaviorally challenging or blind child, you know that there are certain obstacles that your child might face in their life. Right now, one of those obstacles may be getting the medical and educational support they need. When they are older, they may face employment difficulties.

Our Approach To Children’s Claims
Our firm works with teachers, caseworkers, physicians, psychologists and other individuals in your child’s life. These professionals can provide us with a clear understanding of the disability’s impact on your child’s development and growth. With this information, we can bring forward a strong case to secure the SSI benefits necessary for their care.
Our law firm can help if your child has a condition or disability such as:
- Behavioral disorders
- Birth defects
- Learning difficulties
If necessary, we can also assist in modifying your home to fit your child’s needs, and help your family find the help and services you require.
What Happens When My Child Turns 18?
When your child reaches his or her 18th birthday, the SSA will redetermine if your child is still eligible to receive SSI as an adult. We assist in such matters as well, and we can step in and challenge the government’s decision in the event of a denial.
