WHAT IF YOUR CHILD SSI BENEFITS ARE TERMINATED AND YOU DID NOT DO AN APPEAL

In order to resume your benefits, you will have to file a new application. Typically, you will have to go to a hearing. That will take around 20 to 24 months. You will have an opportunity to make two applications. You can make an application alleging you are disabled as a child before age 22 and you can make an application alleging you are a disabled adult. Social Security has different rules for proving you are disabled as a child and for proving you are disabled at adult. In my experience, it is much more difficult to prove you are disabled as a child. There are advantages in proving that you are disabled as a child before age 22. The advantages are as follows. First, at such time as either of your parents dies, retires or becomes disabled, you may be able to be paid under their account. At that time, you would receive Medicare instead of Medicaid. However, as mentioned above, it can be quite difficult to prove your disabled as a child before age 22. Until one of your parents dies, retires or becomes disabled, if you are disabled as a child he would receive SSI and Medicaid.

In addition, you can try to prove you are disabled as an adult. Generally speaking, you would prove that by showing that you were unable to perform any job full-time. That can be because of psychiatric and/or physical reasons.

If you prove you are disabled as a child before its 22, you do not need to prove you are disabled adult. However, proving yourself disabled as an adult does not prove you are disabled as a child.

In order to prove your case, you will need to seek medical treatment for those problems that you believe make it difficult for you to work.
