It’s taxing enough being a full-time working parent with young kids, but imagine having to raise a disabled child. Thankfully, there are a slew of government programs that relieve the financial strains when it comes to raising a child with special needs.
SSI or SSDI? Here’s the Difference
Basically, SSI is a needs-rounded, cash-assistance service for disabled people of any age group that belong to low-income families with limited resources. If your child meets the strict criteria outlined by SSI then they qualify for the benefits.
Now, SSDI is funded by payroll deductions and its based off a child’s disability status, not their own. Once the child turns 22, they qualify for SSDI of their own.
