Children younger than age 18 who are blind or have a qualifying disability may receive SSI payments if they have limited income and resources. We also consider the income and resources of family members living in the child’s household.
If you are a parent, guardian, caregiver, or representative of someone who you think may be eligible, visit Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for Children to learn more about SSI for children and how to apply. You can also use our online tool to Get Started by requesting an appointment to apply for benefits.
