Supplemental Security Income (SSI)
Lawyer For Disabled Adult Children
When your child suffers from a disability, there may be a lot of questions concerning his or her future, particularly when he or she reaches adulthood. Your child may be independent enough to live on his or her own and attend college. However, it may be difficult for him or her to ever be able to achieve full employment and draw a significant income. In these situations, Social Security Disability (SSD) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can help cover your child’s medical expenses and provide him or her with some income.
At Cullen Legal, our Bucks County SSI and disabled adult children attorney can review your situation and help you apply for these valuable benefits. If you have had denied claims, we can also help you appeal the decision and get the help your child needs.
Who Qualifies For These Benefits?
The issues surrounding eligibility for SSD or SSI benefits can be complicated. In general, if a child was disabled before turning 22, is 18 years old or older, and if a parent is either disabled or deceased, he or she may qualify for these benefits. It is not necessary for the child to have worked, as the benefits will be based on the parent’s earning record.
We Handle Initial Applications And Appeals
Our Pennsylvania SSD attorney will walk you through the entire SSI application process. If you have had SSI or SSD claim denied, we can also handle appeals for your case. We understand how the system works and how to effectively build a strong case for your child. In every case that we take, we do not receive any payment unless we are able to recover the benefits you need.
