hello special needs world. we applied for SSI for my 4 year old son who has autism. first the said he was approved, and then 3 weeks later they mail a letter saying we're denied. because my hubby makes to much . I asked if i should re-apply and she told me to just keep on calling in the pay-stubs .( cus i told her my hubbys pay-checks go up and down). i dnt know what to do call it in or get a attorney? If you were in my shoe at one time pls respond with some advice. live in ca

I agree with Angela. Just be persistent. The wheels of government move slowly. They are also quick to deny benefits right now because of the budget crisis. They're cutting corners where they can. If you keep plugging at it they should allow it. I would give it some time and then if they don't allow it I would call an attorney.

If this is something that you need then definitely reapply and reapply and reapply. If you are persistant about it then maybe things will start happening. I have debated about applying for this as well my son is 6 now and he is Autistic as well, high functioning I think though. I'm still torn I really don't want him to be catagorized as Autistic all his life, but I think if he ends up on some kind of special diet it would help immensely. Good luck and be persistent is my advice.
