Are you overwhelmed and confused about the benefits your young adult/adult with a disability qualifies for? Have you heard the terms Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Childhood Disability Benefits (CDB) (formerly known as Disabled Adult Child (DAC) benefits), which is under the umbrella of SSDI benefits? Do you want to know how they could support your loved ones with disabilities – and how you or they might go about securing these public benefits?

Please join Ellen Cookman, owner and principal attorney at Cookman Law, to learn about:
– Applying for and/or maintaining SSI, even while working
– The differences between SSI and CDB
– Medi-Cal/Medicare eligibility requirements and their relationship to SSI/SSDI
– Recent changes in SSI and Medi-Cal eligibility rules
– A timeline for when you or your adult child might qualify for each of these benefits

This is the first in a 4-part series on how to make your loved one’s future more secure by utilizing financial planning and public benefits. Please visit the Connections California fall calendar to register for upcoming events.

This webinar will provide live Spanish interpretation.

This is a Connections California event, a project of Parents Helping Parents – Silicon Valley. Connections California is sponsored in part by the San Andreas Regional Center and the California Department of Developmental Services.
