Can Disabled Minors Receive Social Security Disability Insurance Benefits?

Children don't usually have the work history to qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. However, a youngster's serious disability can have a major impact on the child and their family, so legislators have come up with a new way to secure necessary benefits. Tampa Social Security Disability Lawyer, Mike Murburg offers some insight. He says: "If there is a medically-determinable physical or mental impairment that results in marked or severe functional limitations, your child may be deemed disabled and therefore qualified to receive SSI benefits. The limitations must last for at least one year or must be expected to result in death." Depending on the severity of the impairment, a minimum of one or two qualifying factors must be met. An experienced Social Security lawyer can help determine if your child may be eligible. The Office of Mike Murburg, P.A. has extensive experience working with disabled children and their families. They are committed to helping you secure the benefits your child needs to survive and thrive despite impairments.
