Income chart for Children’s SSI

Social Security has posted on it’s website an income chart for children’s SSI eligibility.  While there are lots of exceptions and other asset requirements that may affect eligibility, the chart gives you a good idea of how much income a family can make and the child still be eligible for SSI.  The full rules can be found here

 

Gross monthly income BELOW the dollar amounts shown means a disabled child may be eligible for SSI benefits.

Amounts given are general guidelines only.
