Disability for Children
When you can't afford to care for your disabled child...
Disabled children under the age of 18 who have few or no resources can apply for disability to the Social Security Administration. Claims are evaluated according to this definition of disability for children:
- The child must be seriously limited in his/her activities due to a physical or mental condition(s)
- The condition must have existed for at least one year, or be expected to last a year or more.
