My 20 year old son with Aspergers syndrome, ADHD, depression, anxiety, etc, has been turned down by SSI again. He had it years ago, but now has been turned down 3 times. Has anyone else experienced this?

Tracey, we lost SSI for a while because my ex husband was finally paying proper child support. Which put us having to much income. ( as if there was such a thing). So both my boys lost their SSI. My oldest son has it again, but my 20 year old keeps getting turned down. My ex doesn't have to pay support anymore due to how are divorce was worded. ( we didn't know boys were disabled). I'm going to appeal, but this is frustrating. Tina

Tina,
Thanks for the info. I just had my son's SSI recert and I was told that since my bf and I did a joint tax return we are now considered married and his income will now be included in the household and it may affect the SSI. I don't think think this is "right" since he's not the biological father but not much I can do about SSI's rules. I'm concerned after reading your situation that it may be harder to get my son re-qualified (if need be) as he gets older.

Tina- why did SSA stop your son's SSI? I'm curious because my 11 y.o. currently gets SSI for autism and I wanted to know under what circumstances he may loose assistance?

That's pretty much common. They love turning down people several times until it goes through. It's a way to try to make them give up, and go away. You may need to get some kind of social worker, disability lawyer, etc, to help out.
