Families with children and other dependents with disabilities or special needs often need professional guidance on how best to prepare for the future well-being of these dependents. It is important to take steps to make financial plans and resolve guardianship issues when the child is still young.

Social Security Disability(SSDI) and Supplemental security income (SSI) are benefits that your child may qualify for. Social Security information is found in this building as is other agencies that may offer benefits counseling, Delaware Division of Social Services may tell you about other programs or financial benefits you may be eligible for.

It is important to remember that your child may be eligible for some benefits and not for others. It is best to ask about all rather than assume your child won’t qualify.
