SSI for Children
Experienced Lawyers Handling Child Disability Claims in Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia
The Social Security Administration (SSA), through the SSI program, offers Social Security benefits to children under the age of 18 who meet the SSA's definition of "disabled."
As cut and dried as that may sound, it is not. In fact, child disability claims can be more complex and harder to win than SSI claims made by adults. By the same token, proper testing and documentation can make them easier to prevail on as well. In other words, choosing an attorney is important.
Does your child's illness, disability or condition prevent them from engaging in age-appropriate activities? That's the critical question. For attorneys know who how to prepare and prevail on child disability claims, call or contact our Pittsburgh law offices today for a free consultation.
