Assistance Securing Children’s And Widow’s Benefits

Unfortunately, situations often arise in life that are unexpected. The death of a spouse, a child that becoming disabled or the birth of a disabled child can have a significant impact on you and your family. If you are a parent of a disabled child or are a disabled widow or widower between the ages of 50 and 60, you may be eligible to receive Social Security Disability or SSI benefits. At Manring & Farrell, we have extensive experience helping disabled widows and widowers and the parents of disabled children file claims, as well as handle the appeals from denied claims to help them receive the Social Security benefits they are due.

Helping Provide Stability For Your Children

At Manring & Farrell, we understand how difficult it can be to be the parent of a disabled child. Medical treatment and medication costs can be staggering. Usually, SSI benefits are the only benefits available for a disabled child, but there are times when a disabled adult child may also be eligible for Social Security Disability benefits and Supplemental Security Income benefits. In order to qualify for SSI benefits as a child, the child must be under 18 years old. In some circumstances, a child who becomes disabled before age 22 may qualify for Social Security benefits.

Representing Widows And Widowers

Social Security benefits are also available to disabled widows or widowers. If you depended on your spouse as the primary wage earner, it may be difficult to earn a living after the spouse’s death when you face serious medical conditions of your own. After the death of your spouse, if you have become disabled and are between the ages of 50 and 60, you may be eligible for benefits as a disabled widow or widower.
