Divorce Can Affect a Disabled Adolescent's SSI

For families or persons affected by disabilities, it is normal for members to examine all aspects of regulations and rules of government programs in order to obtain the most compensation they are entitled to receive via those programs. However, because these rules and regulations can become complicated, many families and persons affected by disabilities can suffer mentally, emotionally, physically, and financially.

In an article published by the Suffolk County Women’s Bar Association of the State of New York, the author, Regina Brandow, Esq., speaks about how SSI benefits are not always outlined in a clear manner, especially for divorced families and single parents. She states that many parents are not confronted with such complexities until they are already helping their disabled child(ren) apply for SSI. In addition, the author comments on how many divorced, single parents receive less help than non-divorced parents, who often receive the full amount of benefits.

Attorney Lloyd C. Rosen, a family lawyer at Wisselman, Harounian & Associates, P.C., adds it is crucial that divorcing families and parents impacted by disabled children obtain knowledge about SSI and the various other programs so that they can be better equipped during the application process. In addition, Attorney Rosen believes that the right family law attorneys can help divorced parents and families prepare such documents in an efficient and effective manner and according to SSA policies.
