Re: Medicaid and SSI denied..?

Hi,
I don't know the laws of Florida but I do have a girlfriend who is getting SSI, She has a daughter who is 9 years old. Becuase she has a daughter who is under the age of 18 years of age, she has money added to her SSI check to help support her. So your Father is on SSI, he may be getting extra money added to his check because she is under 18. That is how it is in Wisconsin. Now I was not able to get SSI for my son because we both work and we maid to much money-( they say), frankly I felt we should have recieved something, even child care would have been nice. My son is down syndrom and I carry him on my health Insurance threw my work, I have never had a problem.
