SSI Benefits for Children: Engaging Families for Successful SOAR Applications

Wednesday, February 3

1:00 – 2:30 PM ET

(SOAR = SSI/SSDI Outreach, Access, and Recovery)

Establishing a child’s eligibility for SSI benefits requires engagement with various child-serving systems such as education, behavioral health, child welfare, and juvenile justice. Building relationships with these systems and engaging the entire family in the process is critical to submitting a successful child SSI application.

On this webinar, you will hear from seasoned SOAR providers who are having great success building relationships with families and professionals from child-serving systems in their communities. You will learn how to collaborate with medical providers to effectively document the child’s disability. Presenters will share their strategies on how to engage families and children using trauma-informed principles and promoting racial equity.
