For children under age 18, Social Security evaluates their cases differently from adults. Children with disabilities are compared to other children of a similar age in six different domains of functioning. A child must have marked limitations in at least two of these domains or a severe limitation in one domain. Because children’s cases are all SSI cases, there are similar strict limitations on household income and assets. Social Security will consider the income of the parents and any other support to the child to determine whether the child is eligible for disability benefits. As with other Social Security Disability programs, there is no cost to you unless we win your child’s claim. If you have a child with a disabling impairment, call our office today for a free evaluation of their Social Security Disability case.
