Establishing Your Child’s Disability Requires Detailed Information
Children under the age of 18 with conditions such as ADHD, cerebral palsy, asthma, blindness or other serious physical and mental conditions may qualify for benefits, but a diagnosis alone is not sufficient. You must show in detail:
- Financial eligibility: Your child cannot be working and earning more per month than the threshold determined by the Social Security Administration.
- Disabling condition or combination of conditions that results in marked and severe functional limitations: You can establish how the disability severely limits your child’s activities through detailed information, including school records, medical records and opinions from qualified professionals.
- Long-term disability: The disability must have lasted or is expected to last for a minimum of 12 months or will result in the child’s death.
