Children’s Disability Benefits

autism-childrens-disability-benefitsThe Law Offices of William Bonilla, PC is dedicated to helping every member of your family, no matter their age.

Unfortunately, children are not thought of when it comes to Social Security Disability Benefits, as most associate disability with the elderly or adults that worked for the majority of their lives. Although these may be true, children do get sick, injured or are even found to have a congenital illness.

Your child may qualify for much-needed benefits that may assist in paying for doctor’s visits, medications or whatever may be needed.

Please feel free to make an appointment to see us, even if someone else has told you no, we will verify for sure if your child may qualify Children’s Disability Benefits.
