How old is this child and what is the disability?I have read it, I just cant tell if hes approved if he will even get anything. I also was under the impression he can file based on my work history and get ssdi. But already getting a payment based on mine although it low seems kinda confusing.
Hes 9, hes got a list, ODD, distachment disorder, adhd they say but it's one I'm not convinced of. It's not really about the money, I just want to do right by him. I Had a severe stroke when I was six and i Lost all function in my left side. My parents didn't seek this stuff out so When I was an adult I was sorta in a pickle. No work history and they never filed o. There's so I had to do my best until I had worked enough to apply. By the time it was over my hip was shot my knees and I had another stroke. I just want him to have help if he needs it. I Hope he doesntHow old is this child and what is the disability?
You say he's struggling -- do you mean with school? Does he have an IDP/IEP? Is he in treatment? How would getting more $$ help him in his struggles?Thank you, your awesome, you cleared up my confusion, btw I didn't intend to slam my parents. And yes I was able to push through and I'm grateful. I was under the impression I could have had ssdi based on there income without going through building my own history and multiple surgeries and the other stroke. Now that I know I will definitely wait. I Was just afraid I would be limiting his options if I waited. And I do think I could have got it at much younger age even though I made it through working. I was and am still pretty messed up. I was just really fortunate I had an employer that was good to me. Thank you for your response and helping out and you may be right he may not meet his criteria but hes struggling and not much we've tried helps so I just want to do everything I can to improve his path.
Yea he does an IEP, he is in treatment he doesnt respond to medication and by struggle I mean it's a train wreck. It wasnt the money right now that I was interested in I was just mistaken on the benefits of applying now. Money won't help anything right now, but I had a misguided thought doing it now and God forbid things dont improve it would help him. I Was wrongYou say he's struggling -- do you mean with school?
