I am a single mom who's son was deserted by his father , he was 680 grams at birth has many issues special ed all his life, mild moderate IQ 60 autism spectrum , muscular motor issue suggested cp,, I did not have him on ssi til 14 when I started health problems and started being ill, lupus , fibro, connective tissue disorder and neck and back disc problems , just got ssi at 54 yrs, they are throwing my son off disability after sending him to one of their psych evals, who tried to say his IQ raised to 68 , no way this adult still cannot fully groom himself and is not physically coordinated to do much at all, he is still in school and they are trying to send him to Roosevelt warm springs a vocational rehab school for rehabilitation, don't believe he is independent enough to do that,, he is very easily taken advantage of and swayed, anyhow he cannot hold substantial work and I cannot support him, on 720 a month, why are they doing this to him, eventually he may work some but not to pay for his ability or insurance , ability controls his behavior, from trouble it is 450.00 a month any ideas I don't want to give him up to the state after all the work I did with him!, especially as his real troubles started after an MMR shot in 1996 required by the gov/state that made his mercury levels off the charts! Pleas help Obama is trying to hurt the disabled children!

Then you will need to go through the process again with him.

It's common when the child turns 18. What was in effect for the child needs to be changed for the adult.

He had it first , I did not go on it till this year , that's what I did reapply and they are trying to kick him off as if his brain damage and cp just went away, think it would be opposite I am not financially responsible for him now, do they just throw him to the dogs, he is not capable of substantial gainful work, maybe he could get a small retail job if ssi kicks in , but will never afford health insurance and meds , he cannot even obtain a drivers license

Because your son is now 18, he no longer qualifies for SSI under your disability. He will have to establish his need for support as an adult, which will require him to go through the gamut of applying, and testing for his own benefits.
