SSI disability benefits for children

Parents in Pennsylvania and elsewhere often face the normal ups and downs with raising a child. While some parents might find it more difficult to meet the needs and requirements of their children, parents raising a child with disabilities often face additional emotional, mental and financial challenges. In these circumstances, parents could consider how Supplemental Security Income, or SSI, could assist them with the care and well-being of their child with a disability.

Does my blood disorder qualify me for SSDI benefits?

Certain illnesses may qualify a Philadelphia resident for eligibility to receive Social Security Disability Insurance benefits (SSDI). However, this post should not be read as either medical or legal advice, should not be used to diagnose or treat a potential medical ailment, or should not be understood to provide specific legal guidance. An individual's doctor can help him formulate the proper diagnosis for his medical condition and his Social Security disability attorney can support him as he pursues benefits from the Social Security Administration.

How do SSI benefits differ from SSDI benefits?

When Philadelphia residents are in need of serious help, it often pays to get assistance from multiple places. This is certainly the case when a person is struggling with his or her finances because of an illness, injury or other condition.

Will SSI or SSDI benefits be taxed?

Tax season is one of the most dreaded times of the year for many Philadelphia residents. It can be stressful and emotionally draining to prepare a tax return, particularly when unique circumstances are present. One such unique circumstance comes when individuals over the age of 65 receive Social Security payments, including Social Security disability benefits.
