A child can obtain benefits through a parent's SSDI account if one of the following conditions exists:
Since disabled children have not worked and paid into the Social Security system, they are not eligible to receive SSD for their disabilities. However, disabled children may be eligible for Supplement Security Income, which is a need-based program.
If you are applying for SSI benefits for a disabled child, you will need to furnish medical evidence to prove the disability. The documents should cover any diagnosed medical condition and in the case of certain mental or behavioral disorders, school and/or psychiatric records that show that the child is disabled. Our attorneys will be here to help you gather all of the necessary documentation for SSI claims to ensure that your child gets the benefits he or she requires for his or her disability issues.
