The workshop will focus on the benefits 1) a “child”, 2) a “student child”, and 3) a “young adult” may be entitled or eligible to receive from the Social Security Administration. The age range under discussion will be 15 to 25 years of age. Note: the benefits for “young adults” are applicable to all adults.
9:00 AM - 10:30 AM
1) What programs are available from Social Security and how does someone successfully apply?
The Social Security Administration is responsible for administering two programs: Title II commonly known as Social Security and Title XVI commonly known as SSI. People do not pick which benefit they receive. This workshop explains how to apply for benefits properly and how Social Security decides which benefit the person may receive and why some students cannot qualify for a benefit program.
Specific topics addressed:
The medical criteria used and functional assessments
Parent-to-child deeming of income and resources (SSI).
The age 18 re-determination process (SSI).
How to qualify some children when deemed income makes them ineligible for SSI.
10:30 AM - 12:00
2) How does SSI work?
SSI (Supplemental Security Income) is based on financial need and having a disability (if the person is under 65 years of age). The amount of the SSI payment a person receives depends on how much income a person has from other sources. This workshop addresses the common question people have is: “How much can I earn and still qualify for SSI?”
Specific topics covered:
“In-kind support and Maintenance” reductions (SSI)
The general calculation of income to determine SSI amount.
The application of the Student Earned Income Exclusion. (A great tool in transition work experiences)
1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
3) What benefit can a young person qualify for based on a parent's work record?
Some children and disabled adult children can receive a benefit based on a parent’s work record and taxes paid to Social Security. This workshop explains the benefit programs available and the qualifications. Once a student qualifies for one these benefit programs, wage can impact the cash benefit received from Social Security. Specific income exclusions will be explained to reduce how much income Social Security counts.
Specific topics covered:
The potential transition from SSI to SSDI. Preparing families.
Income limits of the parent affecting the dependent’s benefit.
The application and documentation of subsidies and impairment-related work expenses.
2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
4) Reporting income and maintaining records.
Overpayments are a common event, but they have a significant impact on the family’s continuing support of work experiences for a son or daughter. While some overpayments can not be avoided, simple tools can be used to manage records and identify when there is a potential problem. A simple process will be demonstrated to help families, representative payees, and beneficiaries maintain financial records.
