Benefits for Children
Children of people who are eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits are often able to receive payments. If children are themselves disabled and the parents are disabled or have little income, they may be eligible for SSI benefits. If one or both of their parents are deceased, retired or disabled, they may be able to receive benefits for children under SSDI. In short, there are several ways a child may become eligible to receive payments.
At Russell & Hill, PLLC, located in Everett, and servicing Snohomish, King and Skagit County, Washington, our attorneys help obtain benefits for children and their families that are eligible. Each case is different and it is important to obtain legal counsel to help you evaluate the options available under SSI and SSDI.

How an Attorney Can Help
Because there are several ways that SSI and SSDI benefits for children can be obtain, our attorneys evaluate each case carefully to determine the correct approach. In almost all cases, we help clients document the disability of either the child or the parent. Here are some of the issues we consider:
- Did a disability occur before the disabled person turned 22?
- Does he or she meet the adult requirements for disability?
- Did a deceased parent work long enough to be eligible for Social Security benefits?
- What is the income of a disabled child’s parent?
In cases where we help disabled children apply for SSI benefits for themselves, we assemble medical and educational records that document the child’s disability. We also document the parents’ income and that of other people living in the household — SSI is a benefit for low income individuals. We help them complete the Child Disability Report that documents the child’s condition. We may contact teachers, counselors doctors and others in the education or health care fields to help prove the child’s claim.
In cases where an adult is receiving or is eligible for SSDI, his or her children under age 18 may also be eligible for SSDI benefits for children. We help clients collect the necessary documentation and develop strong cases for the disability of the parent so the child may receive benefits.
Our attorneys are aggressive, dedicated advocates who devote all the time and energy necessary to pursue every client’s case successfully.
