My youngest daughter got approved for SSI as an adult. She has Aspergers. I'm glad. I think.
I remember going to a regular doctor appointment. She was 17 1/2 years old. He sent her out of the room and asked me what we planned to do. In the conversation he told me to go apply for SSI for her. I remember telling him I did not want to.
I did it though. She qualified after about 4 months. She did not get a check for two months and only part of a check a couple months because I made too much money. A couple months after she turned 18 years Social Security started the process of deciding if she still qualified.
I was on pins and needles. I was not sure if this daughter would qualify. She can do so much more than my oldest daughter. The oldest one has Autism and all the behaviors that go with it.
I hear from the youngest daughter every day, several times a day. She qualified.
At least it gives her a base to live her life. I still hope and will work with her to get her to work someday. I'm just not sure how I feel about it.
