Can Children Qualify for Supplemental Security Income Benefits?

Scott Monge

Children younger than age 18 can qualify for Supplemental Security Income (“SSI”) payments if Social Security’s definition of disability for children is met. Disability for children differs from adult disability requirements. A child’s disability is compared to the disability listings, which is comprised a detailed list of various medical conditions, and if the child’s illness matches one of the listings, he may be determined disabled. Children will also be assessed to determine if certain marked and or severe functional limitations caused by their medical conditions. If the child satisfies Social Security’s inquiry of the aforementioned, he or she may be ruled disabled.

As with adults, there are resource limits for children applying for SSI. Therefore, if the household resources are above a certain limit, the child will not be eligible for SSI benefits.
