What is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) for Children?

SSI makes monthly benefit payments to children who meet the Social Security's definition of disability for children and whose families fall within the income eligibility limits. Everyone, regardless of age, who is eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) is also eligible for Medicare after a 2 year (24-month) qualifying period.

Who is it for?

Children, Disabled

Who is Eligible?

Children from birth to age 18 with a medical disability that limits their activities may be eligible for SSDI. The disability must be expected to last for at least one year or result in death. Examples of conditions that may qualify a child for the program include HIV infection, total blindness, total deafness, cerebral palsy, down syndrome, muscular dystrophy, severe intellectual disorder in a child age 7 or older), or birth weight below 2 pounds, 10 ounces.

How much is it?

SSDI for Children provides monthly benefit payments to those who qualify for the program. There is no out-of-pocket cost.

How to Apply?

You can apply for Disability benefits online, or if your prefer, you can apply by calling our toll-free number,1-800-772-1213. Our representatives there can make an appointment for your application to be taken over the telephone or at any convenient Social Security office

Can I get Social Security disability benefits for any months before I apply?

We may pay Social Security disability benefits for as many as 12 months before you apply if we find you had disability during that time and you meet all of the other requirements.

Can I return to work while getting Social Security disability benefits?

Yes, you can return to work while receiving Social Security disability benefits. We have special rules to help you get back to work without jeopardizing your initial benefits. You may be able to have a trial work period for nine months to test whether you can work.
If you get disability benefits and your condition improves or you return to work, report these changes to us by calling us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778) or contacting your local Social Security office.

Will you lower my Social Security benefits if I get a pension from work not covered by Social Security?

When you get a pension from work not covered by Social Security, we may figure your Social Security benefits using a different formula. This lowers your Social Security benefit. We do this whether your pension comes from work you did for a U.S. government agency or in a foreign country.

How long does it take to get a decision after I apply for disability benefits?

The time it takes to get a decision on your disability application can vary depending on:

  • The nature of your disability;
  • How quickly we can get your medical evidence from your doctor or other medical source;
  • Whether it is necessary to send you for a medical examination; and
  • Whether we review your application for quality purposes.

Is there a waiting period for Social Security disability benefits?

If you are eligible for Social Security disability benefits, there is a five-month waiting period before we can begin your benefits. We will pay your first benefit for the sixth full month after the date we find your disability began.
