Supplemental Security Income Guidance For Parents

When your child suffers from a disability, there may be a lot of questions concerning their future, particularly when they reach adulthood. Your child may be independent enough to live on their own and attend college. However, it may be difficult for them to achieve full employment and draw a significant income. In these situations, Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits can help cover your child’s medical expenses.

At Cullen Legal, our Bucks County attorney can review your situation and help you apply for these valuable benefits. If you have denied claims, we can also help you appeal the decision and get the help your family 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, they could 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 claims denied, we can also handle appeals for your case. We understand how the system works and how to build a strong case for your child effectively. In every case we take, we do not receive any payment unless we can recover the benefits you need.
