Social Security And Children’s Cases

Did you know that children with disabilities can qualify for Social Security Benefits and Medicare? The money from Social Security must be used to benefit the child.

How do children qualify? First, Social Security will review income available to the child and the parents to determine if the child financially qualifies. The child must not be earning more than $900 per week.

Second, Social Security reviews the problems the child has, in order to determine if he or she has “marked and severe functional limitations.” This means your child’s condition seriously limits his or her activities. This condition must be expected to last for longer than 12 months or possibly result in death.

There are some conditions that Social Security considers so disabling that they will begin making payments immediately while they review your child’s case. These include: HIV, Total Blindness, Total Deafness, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Muscular Dystrophy, Severe Retardation, and a birth weight below 2 lbs 10 ounces.

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
