What about the Children?
Posted in: Children on November 2nd, 2011

childrens benefitsMany people who receive Supplemental Security Income often have dependents in their home to worry about. Considering how the disability benefits related to Supplemental Security Income are statistically lower than those that are associated with Social Security Disability Insurance, this presents a serious problem when it comes to the business of raising a family here. To put this in perspective, consider that the average recipient of Supplement Security Income only receives between 35 and 60% of their original wage.

The average for those who receive Supplemental Security Income is even lower: some individuals receive less than $1000 in assistance a month.

Benefits For Children

The sad answer to this is “no”. Supplement Security Income is only designed to attend to the needs of one person. If your child is also disabled, he or she may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income depending on if they are eligible for the program based off of the same criteria used to qualify adults.

In the event that you have minors and are receiving Supplement Security Income, be sure to speak with your local welfare office. They will be able to offer you opportunities for assistance when it comes to providing for minors. The wages that are paid by Supplement Security Income are often very low, so be sure to explore all of the avenues that you can to help you raise your children the best that you can. You can learn more about Supplemental Security Income at the Social Security Administration’s website at www.ssa.gov.
