SSI Questions

Our two blessings from China are eligible to apply for SSI for their Spina Bifida (and our son with mental disorders but that’s a whole other post) and we are considering doing that at some point to help offset the medical end of things. Part of me feel scummy for even thinking about it…I don’t want people thinking I’m doing it just for the money.

What, long-term, does this mean for them as adults? Obviously, they will always have complications and challenges due to their special needs and that won’t ever be “outgrown”.
