Re: Children's Mental Health
SSI in the case of a child is based on the family's income along with her meeting the criteria of disability as a child. You can use on of the many online calculators to see if your family meets the income limits. If you do then the only way to find out for sure if she falls under any of the criteria for a disabled child is to apply for her and go through the process. Even if income wise you do not qualify do not forget that at 18 you can apply for her as an adult when family income is no longer counted.
