SOCIAL SECURITY OUESTIONS What is the "definition of disability" for children fil- ing for Supplemental ri 9 Secu "ty Income (SSI). Answer: A child is disabled if he or she: Has a physical or mental condition (or a combination of conditions) that results in "marked and severe func- tional limitations." This means thit the condition very seriously limits the child's activities; and The condition has lasted, or is expected to last, at least one year or is expected to result in death; and is not working at a job that we con- sider to be substantial work. To determine whether your child meets the defmi- tion of disability, we look at medical and other informa- from schools and from you) about the child's condition. We also consider how the condition affects the child's daily activities. We consider: what activities is your child not able to do, or is limited in doing; the type of extra help and how much extra help your child needs to perform age-appropriate activities (for example, special classes at school, medical equip- ment; and whether the treat- ment interferes with your child's day-to-day activities. Remember that SSI is a needs-based program where family income and resources also play a role in determin- ing eligibility for benefits.
