My son is now eighteen and we are applying for disability. It is quite clear he is not going to be able to be 100% independent. Does anyone know how much the disability payment is? I realize all states are different, but I want to get an estimate. Sonic wants to stay at home for now and that's fine with us. We are older parents though and we worry about a time when maybe he can't. We do hope he can also get placed in a job to help supplement social security, but can't help worrying. After all....he is still our baby. And he's such a sweet young man. Honestly, he is too naive and child like to live and work "out there" without a caseworker helping him a little bit. He could easily become somebody's victim. Hub and I are hoping to leave this world secure that our angel is going to be taken care of. So we sort of would like to know, from those who have been there, what we may be looking at for our son. I would love to say his siblings would take him in, but that's easier said than done...they will all have t heir own families and two live out of state. He wants to live here, where he knows everybody and they all know him. How much of a payment do they give our disabled young adults? And what else are they offered? I'd rather hear the truth from a parent than from some beaurocrat, at least at first.
