We currently pay SSI benefits to a parent of a disabled child. The maximum amount payable is $674.00 per month.
We pay this amount to a parent even if the parent is an illegal alien who does not have a social security number.
If this parent, who does not have a social security number, has several disabled children, SSI will pay up $674.00 per month per child. There is not a maximum amount payable per family.
We should not provide a monthly check for these parents who are in the country illegally.
If their child, who is a US citizen, is disabled, then the child should qualify for medicaid only.
In addition, these same parents, who are in the country illegally, should not qualify for housing assistance.
