I Looked at the ssa.gov and saw that my ssi disability claim was denied. I was wondering since the ssi claim was denied will the child disability claim also be denied?, I'm very confused.
First, it is important to understand that there are two types of disability claims for adults: SSD and SSI. The first, SSD, is based on your own earnings over the years and would allow for a child's auxiliary benefit if you were approved. SSI, which is a welfare type program for those who have not worked enough or recently enough, does not provide for any auxiliary children's benefit. However, the child themselves may qualify for SSI on their own accord if they are disabled and the family meets the "non-medical" requirement of not having too much money in the household.
