Emmett’s SSI interview went really well

      20 Comments on Emmett’s SSI interview went really well


After walking this morning, I had Emmett’s SSI interview. It took about 45 minutes and was relatively easy. Now comes the part where they are collecting medical records, of which there are many. 

I was told to expect a 3 to 6 month wait to find out whether or not he’s been approved. 

  
When we went through this process with Gavin, it ended up only being a couple of months but he was approved without a problem. I’m not sure how I feel about our chances this time but from what all Emmett’s doctors and specialists have said, he should absolutely qualify.

I look at Emmett and Elliott and I always see how well they are doing. The problem with that is I’m not looking at it objectively. 



I know all the problems they face and so I sorta automatically take that into account. I also don’t have a more typical frame of reference either. 

The reality is that life for my kids is an uphill battle and they do as well as they do because of the enormous amount of accommodations that are made for them both at home and at school. 

I hate really even saying that because I feel like it takes away from their hard work and unending efforts but at the same time, it’s important for me to keep everything in perspective. 



Regardless, I’m so proud of my kids and all they have accomplished already. I can’t wait to see all they accomplish going forward.. ❤️👍😀

One of the hardest things I had to do. I cried when he was approved, reality hit hard.

What benefits will he receive if approved? Isn’t he already in the system as far as being on Medicaid? I guess I’m confused about monetary benefits being given for kids.

I totally get it. When my oldest was approved years ago, it was bitter sweet because it was like it had become more real…U0001f615

It works the same way as it does for adults

I understand that part, but what is the money for? For adults, it’s to replace the earnings from a job. I guess my real question is, why give money to kids?

It’s to help cover the out of pocket expenses associated with their disabilities. Not my term, theirs.

Rob Gorski Ok, I guess that makes sense.  I don’t know anyone with kids on disability so I wasn’t sure what the money was supposed to be for.

But you know what Rob, the boy’s know you are stressed out, so they’ll still accomplish &#038 do great things &#038 maybe even more things when more money is coming into the household to help.

Very true. If it does work out, that will be a huge burden lifted and will help me get back on my feet so I can become more self-sustaining.
