Does Your Child Qualify for Social Security Disability?

Find out by retaining an experienced Las Vegas Social Security Disability attorney or representative from our office

If you have a disabled child, you need as much financial support as you can get. Treatment and medicine can be expensive, and you may also have to pay for childcare. Perhaps you have chosen to work fewer hours so that you can be available to take care of your child more. It can be difficult to cover these costs while still providing your child with opportunities to enjoy all that life has to offer.

Our office wants to make the life of both you and your child easier by pursing Social Security Disability benefits. Navigating the system can be challenging, but with 20 years of experience, you can trust our Las Vegas Social Security Disability lawyer and representatives to assist you every step of the way.

How do I apply for SSD benefits for my child?

Fortunately, not all of the same rules for adult Social Security Disability benefits apply to children. Before a child can receive benefits, both the child's income and the family's income must be evaluated. This tells the Social Security office how much money your child can receive each month.

A child must meet all of the following requirements to be eligible:

  • They cannot be working or earning in excess of $1,180 a month
  • They have a mental or physical issue that has brought about serious or noticeable limitations in function
  • The child's condition must have been disabling for at least one year or can result in death

When you apply for benefits, you are required to send in thorough information about your child's disability and how it impacts them on a regular basis. Teachers, doctors, and therapists may also be required to send in information. Although it can take three to five months to process your application, some medical conditions might cause benefit payments to begin right away.
