ocial Security has a strict definition of disability for children.
• The child must have a physical or mental condition(s) that very seriously limits his or her
• The condition(s) must have lasted, or be expected to last, at least 1 year or result in death.
A state agency makes the disablity decision. They review the information you give us. They will also
ask for information from medical and school sources and other people who know about the child.
If the state agency needs more information, they will arrange an examination or test for the child,
which we will pay for.
