At Golson, McCracken Inc., we take on North Carolina Social Security Disability (SSD) and Supplemental Security Income (SSI) claims for people of all ages and from all walks of life. No case is a “small” case to us. We do not focus only on the big claims involving benefits through SSD, SSI and veterans disability. Our team is committed to helping those in need, and we take pride in assisting families who are working to make ends meet in spite of a child’s physical or mental impairment.
If you want to maximize the value of benefits that your child can receive and avoid an unnecessary delay or denial of your claim, come to us for help from a team with nearly 20 years of experience and a $25 million track record.
Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is not reserved only for adults who have been working and then forced out of a job due to a serious injury or illness. Your adult child may also be able to qualify for SSDI benefits if he or she has been diagnosed with a condition that is expected to last for at least a year or to result in death. The disabling condition must have begun before the child’s 22nd birthday. A child who is receiving SSD benefits must have a parent who is either retired or disabled and eligible to receive Social Security payments or must be the child of a deceased parent who was eligible for Social Security.
The amount that a child can receive in benefits is based on the parent’s own earnings record. Once your child has been receiving SSDI benefits for at least two years, he or she will become eligible to receive Medicare coverage to help pay for treatment, care and medication. Our team of claims representatives can assist you with preparing your child’s claim as well as pursuing benefits through the appeals process in the event that the claim is wrongfully denied.
Supplemental Security Income is for the elderly, the blind, and the disabled, and many of the people who receive this type of benefit are children who fall into either the second or the third category. In fact, the Social Security Administration reports that 15.8 percent of all SSI recipients in June of 2013 were under the age of 18 years and that their average monthly payment was $632.96. To qualify for SSI, your child must meet the same definition of disability as the one that is used to determine eligibility for SSD benefits. Additionally, your child may not earn any more than $1,040 in income on a monthly basis. Beyond your child’s income, the SSA will also consider your own income and resources and those of any other family members who share the same household.
The average wait time for a decision in a child’s SSI claim ranges from three to five months or longer, but SSA will begin paying benefits immediately for certain conditions including cerebral palsy, total deafness or blindness, Down syndrome, HIV, and severely low birth weight. If your child does meet the eligibility requirements for SSI, he or she will most likely be qualified to receive Medicaid coverage to pay for medical care and treatment.
