Benefits For Children With Disabilities 2023

“This booklet is for the parents,
caregivers, or representatives of
children younger than age 18 who have
disabilities that may make them eligible
for Supplemental Security Income
(SSI) payments. It is also for adults
with disabilities since childhood (prior to
age 22) who might be entitled to Social
Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
benefits. We call this SSDI benefit a
“child’s” benefit because it’s paid on a
parent’s Social Security earnings record.
This booklet will help you decide if you,
your child, or a child you know may be
eligible for SSI or SSDI.”
