Philadelphia’s Leading Child Disability Lawyer
When it comes to their children, a parent will do anything to make sure all needs are met. This is especially true for parents in Montgomery County and its surrounding areas who are caring for a child with a physical or mental disability, as their needs tend to be more demanding.
To meet the financial demands associated with caring for disabled children, lower-income families caring for disabled children can apply for and collect Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
The child disability lawyers at Silver & Silver have more than four decades of experience securing SSI benefits for their clients. Our law firm will guide you through the entire process of obtaining SSI so that you can focus on what’s important: caring for your disabled child.
What Are SSI Disability Benefits?
Supplemental Security Income (SSI) is a program that pays out benefits to disabled adults and children with low income and limited resources. Parents who wish to apply for SSI benefits for their child must complete two applications, an SSI form, and a Child Disability Report. This process can be lengthy and complicated. Therefore, it’s highly recommended to hire a child disability lawyer to evaluate and explain all the available options.
Aside from having little to no income and resources, there are two conditions that must be met for a child to qualify as having a childhood disability.
- The child must have a serious mental or physical condition that limits his or her activities.
- The child’s condition has lasted or is expected to last for at least 12 consecutive months.

How Silver & Silver’s Child Disability Lawyers Can Help You with Your Child’s Case
Getting disability benefits for a child is often difficult and requires a substantial amount of evidence in order for the claim to be approved. At Silver & Silver, our child disability lawyers work tirelessly to handle every component involved in obtaining the benefits your family needs and deserves.
For a child to qualify for SSI benefits in Montgomery County and across the Tri-state area, the Social Security Administration requires tests, reports, and medical opinions to prove that the child’s mental or physical disorder meets SSA’s benefit standards. Silver & Silver will contact all of the appropriate institutions to obtain the most relevant tests and documents, as well as communicate with both medical and educational professionals to establish our client’s eligibility.
In addition to providing the SSA with these important medical and educational records, parents are also required to fill out a household assets application as proof of their limited income. While the more information a parent provides, the better, it also has to be the correct information. The child disability attorneys at Silver & Silver can take this overwhelming task off your hands and put the right information in front of the SSA when applying for benefits.
