SSI Benefits for Children

I think we need to re-analyze our entitlement factors for children’s benefits. As an SSI Claims Representative, I see so many children receiving SSI payments for disability that are not critical. Premature, ADHD, Autism, Slow learner, ect. If anything, they should only receive Medical not money. Why should we pay parents to take care of their own children? If my child were disable, I would not get help because I work. Most of the children that receive benefits still go to school and live a normal life. I think that we need to stop this soon.
