About This Booklet
This booklet is written primarily for the parents and caregivers of children with disabilities and adults disabled since childhood. It illustrates the kinds of Social Security and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits a child with a disability might be eligible for and explains how we evaluate disability claims for children.
Millions of children already get benefits from Social Security. This will help you decide if your child, or a child you know, is eligible for Social Security or SSI.
