When your special needs kid turns 18, there’s a ton of shit you have to worry about

We just finished meeting with Social Security. Gavin has to requalify for permanent disability now because he’s eighteen years old.

The appointment only took about an hour and that’s not too bad. I felt terrible because there were people without appointments who’d already been waiting almost five hours for a possible walk-in appointment. That absolutely sucks.

Anyway, we answered all the necessary questions and they were really good with Gavin. Now we wait four or five months and see what happens.

I’m still his payee and there was no paperwork needed for that. When Lizze and I gain permeate guardianship, I’ll have to submit those papers but it doesn’t really change anything.

They will be pulling all of Gavin’s medical records since his last appoval and using that to determine if he’s permanently disabled. Gavin’s absolutely disabled but we have to go through the process anyway. The SSA representative doesn’t think there will be any issues at all. This is basically a formality.

I really hope she’s right and there aren’t any snafu’s….
