SSI/SSD with schizophrenia Help Article

Found this morning on my fb feed from “Parents of Kids with Schizophrenia” group.
It’s what I’ve been told so far by the Social Security folks…and is now starting to make sense (sort of) to me. I’m keeping it as a reference…short, but clear. Explains some of the thinking behind the programs.

My son is currently on SSI. We have applied for him to receive SSDI off of his dad’s social security. First application was denied as he was not considered disabled enough prior to the age of 22.
