Most of the time when we think of SSI (Supplemental Security Income) we think of people who have been in the workforce and are now in need of financial assistance. SSI is financed by general funds of the US Treasury and not based on your prior work history like we have come to know Social Security.
SSI beneficiaries are also eligible for medical assistance known as Medicaid (Not Medicare). This pays for a myriad of health issues such as hospital stays, prescription drugs, visits to the doctor, and other various health-related expenses. To begin, you should secure The Child Disability Starter Kit. Read this first.
The next step is to contact the right attorney to guide you in this process. Why? Because the legal issues surrounding a child’s disability claims may become quite complex. The right choice is Seattle area SSI attorney Lyle Clark. For decades, he has helped families navigate through the legal system. Call for a consultation at his Bellevue, WA office at (425) 452-3092.
