How Does My Child Qualify?
Raising one or more children is already a time consuming and expensive task—raising someone with a disability requires even more effort and resources. Receiving monthly SSI benefits can help immensely by guaranteeing regular payments exclusively for your child and their needs.
To qualify for monthly SSI payments the child must be:
- Not their head of household
- Under the age of 18
Once the above has been established, other criteria include:
- Meet a Blue Book listing of impairment
- And/or Medically equal listing of impairment
- And/or Functionally equal the listing
- There are 6 categories- Two (2) have to be markedly limited and One (1) has to be extremely limited.
However, securing SSI benefits for children isn’t easy. This is where we come in. At Rubin & Badame, Attorneys at Law, P.C., we have extensive experience representing disabled individuals throughout the country.
What Expenses Do SSI Benefits Cover?
Your child’s monthly SSI payments amount will vary based on several factors, including where you live and whether your child has any countable income of their own. That said, the federal base rate as of 2020 is $783 per month
Monthly SSI payments may be allotted for the following expenses:
- Securing basic needs for your child, like food and shelter
- Paying for medical bills and other expenses
- Paying off debts, such as past due medical bills
- Other personal needs for your child, such as clothing and recreation
