Do You Need Help Obtaining SSI For A Child?
Does your child struggle with a physical or psychological disability that prevents him or her from attending school? Is the school system unable to meet your child’s needs? Has a doctor or pediatrician given your child a disabling diagnosis?
As a parent, it is natural to be concerned about your child’s education and future. Regardless of whether the child is struggling with a physical or psychological impairment, disability benefits may provide the financial assistance you need to better address the situation. We encourage you to contact us at Davis, Davis & Patterson. We are here to help.
All disability cases are handled on contingency. We don’t get paid until you do.
Our attorneys have more than 80 years of combined experience practicing disability law. We will carefully examine the unique details surrounding your child’s diagnosis and struggles in school. You will receive a straightforward evaluation of all options available to you, including Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI), disability insurance benefits (DIB) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
Children’s Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
It is important to remember that children’s SSI benefits are partially based on the parents’ income. You must be at or below a certain income level to qualify, and all forms of income are taken into consideration, including alimony, child support, freelance work, a privately owned business and regular employment.
The child’s disability is also taken into consideration and the court system places a heavy emphasis on expert testimony. Input from teachers, recommendations from the school system and a doctor’s diagnosis are particularly helpful. If your child is unable to attend school, if the school system is unable to work with or properly provide for your child’s needs, then we encourage you to contact us to discuss the situation.
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
While ADHD can in itself be disabling, often that diagnosis alone will not sustain a claim for disability. However, when it is combined with other physical or psychological issues, the resulting condition can be severe enough to qualify for disability.
