Children with disabilities in Ohio may be entitled to benefits through the Supplemental Security Income program of the Social Security Administration. Most often, SSI applies to adults, but children might qualify if they meet the requirements of the SSA definition of disability. To be eligible, the relevant party also must not exceed the household income and resource limits established by the SSA. Adults who have been disabled since they were under 18 years of age might be eligible for a different type of benefit through Social Security Disability Insurance.
