What Will Happen If Social Security Reviews Your Child's Eligibility for SSI? Arc Q&A #101-36.
Arc, Arlington, TX.
This fact sheet uses a question-and-answer format to address concerns that parents of children with a disability may have concerning their child's continuing eligibility for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Questions and answers explain the following topics: how children now qualify as "disabled" and the new standards; when Social Security will review some children's cases; what information parents should help collect; how parents can appeal if a child is denied SSI benefits after the review; and what happens to Medicaid coverage if a child loses SSI benefits. Developmental milestones are listed by age grouping and area of functioning (cognition/communication, motor, social, personal, concentration/persistence, and responsiveness to stimuli). Sources of information, assistance, and advocacy are listed. (DB)
