SSI and SSDI: Understanding and successfully applying for benefits

Join SSI/SSDI advocate Caitlin Thomas, Family Empowerment and Autism Connections for a virtual discussion about SSI and SSDI.

Completing paperwork properly and submitting the proper documents can make a big difference in getting approved for benefits.

This training will cover these topics and more:

  • What is the difference between SSI & SSDI?
  • When and how do I apply?
  • What happens to benefits when my child with a disability turns 18?
  • What effect does my work income, and my child’s, have on overall benefits?
  • When I retire, what happens to my child’s SSI benefits?

Presenter Caitlin Thomas also specializes in the Social Security disability claims’ process and will review how to prepare for a disability claim review.
