I'm hoping that someone that has some knowledge about social security disability can weigh in here I qualified my difficult child last year in FEB. He qualified the first time without any hassle. When he qualified I was told that he would not be eligible after a years time if he stayed in the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) that he currently resides at. I was also told that our income was too high for him to remain on disability, if he remained in our custody. Right now he gets a little more than $30 a month. To be honest with you last year we were in such a crisis mode that I didn't really get the details that I needed to have. I thought that once someone qualifies that was it, but I was lead to believe otherwise. Sadly, my difficult child is worse now than he was at this time last year despite all the interventions that he has had. He is a danger to himself and us, he will not be discharged from his Residential Treatment Center (RTC) in the immediate future and when and if he is he will not be able to return home. I know that he should qualify for disability longterm or least I think he should (but common sense doesn't always win in these situations). I don't want to go through the whole process of getting him qualified again if I don't have to but I will do it all again if need be. There is very little that I can do for my difficult child, so I grab onto the small things because they allow me to do something and something is better than nothing. Can anyone give me any advise.
