Do Children Get A Free Ride?
Posted in: Children on August 25th, 2011

One of the most prevalent rumors when it comes to the business of disability benefits for children (which tend to come in the form of Supplemental Security Income) is that it is easier for children to get disability payouts as opposed to adults.  This is categorically false – in fact, there is evidence that says children’s cases are often more difficult to win.

Why Is It Harder For Kids?

Much of the difficulty lies in the fact that kids have a better chance of seeing marked improvement in their medical conditions as opposed to adults.  The average amount of time it takes for children to be approved for disability is three years, and in this time a child’s body will change more physiologically than an adult’s ever will.  This means that during the application process, lots of children see their disabilities become much more mild or even disappear completely.

Another issue is that many children who are applying for Supplemental Security Income are doing so due to disorders like ADHD and learning disabilities, which can often be much more difficult to get through the court systems as compared to a physical medical malady.  For this reason, kids take a lot longer to get through the Supplemental Security Income process as compared to adults.  If you have a child who might be eligible for Supplemental Security Income, be sure to start the process as soon as possible!  The earlier you start, the better your chances are of receiving your benefits faster.  Don’t forget to have your child checked out regularly at the doctor – a strong medical history is the best way to ensure acceptance of disability claims at any age.
