SSI provides cash benefits to eligible individuals with disabilities. Ages youth thru 21 years of age. Children who get SSI usually also qualify for free medical care through the Medicaid program.

There are both financial and disability eligibility rules. The financial rules count the parents’ income from salary or wages. The rules also count the parents’ resources such as savings or property to decide if child qualifies. The amount of money you have affects eligibility and how much SSI your child gets each month. The disability rules require children to have “marked and severe” functional limitations from a physical or mental condition. This means that your child cannot do the same things that another child who is the same age, but who does not have disabilities, can do. SSI also provides benefits to eligible adults with disabilities who do not qualify for earned social security. Youth and adults automatically qualify for Medicaid if SSI benefits are received. When calling for application, must have Social Security number.
