Children Can Receive SSI Benefits

If you have a child who cannot function because he or she is challenged by medical, mental, or emotional issues, your child may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI benefits for children are not connected to whether or not the child can work; they are based on physical capacities and ability to care for oneself, cognitive ability, level of socialization, and emotional balance.

A child under the age of 18 may quality if he or she meets Social Security’s definition of disability for children and meet the financial requirements. Social Security considers your child’s income and resources. They also consider income and resources of family members living in the child’s household.
