There was some discussion on SSI or disability in another thread and I didn't want to hijack it. Can those of you who have difficult child's who've applied for it, share your experiences? I am pretty certain mine would qualify, but we never considered it because I certainly don't want anyone handing him money! In the other thread though, I read he could have a representative payee or something like that? For now, he's in a Transitional Living program for those with-mental illness and its not recommended he have a job. At least for the first 3 mos anyway.The cost of the program is minimal, so we are just paying it but I sure would like to not have to!!
