Supplemental Security Income (SSI) - Childhood SSI Benefits for Muscular Dystrophy

Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may be available for a child who has suffered from muscular dystrophy. If the family income falls below certain levels and the child meets the medical requirements, he or she may be entitled to monthly monetary benefits and Medicaid (or state variant) health insurance.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) - Muscular Dystrophy

A person may be eligible for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits based on muscular dystrophy. If a person is not working and has been diagnosed with this severe condition, the Social Security Administration (SSA) will determine whether the person is disabled under a listing or whether jobs exist considering the person's residual functional abilities for purposes of Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). The Listings are just that - listings of conditions that qualify for someone disability benefits based on the diagnosis and severity of a medical impairment. A person must show that she meets or equals the listed condition and required severity.
