While Social Security disability insurance benefits are not granted for children's disabilities, disability benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) program are. SSI , however, is only available to families with low income and low assets. When Social Security assesses a child's financial eligibility, part of the parents' income is deemed available to the child.
