Understanding SSI/Medicaid & SSDI/Medicare: Register Now for Upcoming Workshop
Friday, September 9th, 2016
Here at M&L Special Needs Planning, we know that being a parent of a child with special needs can be overwhelming and exhausting. From the very first steps of the special needs journey, parents are faced with an overload of information. They are responsible for making huge decisions that impact the future of their child with a disability, and the family as a whole.
If this is how you feel – stressed, exhausted, and overwhelmed – then don’t worry! Most (if not all) parents who have a child or children with special needs feel the same. It is this feeling, in fact, that inspired the creation of M&L Special Needs Planning. Our primary goal is to help you simplify – as much as possible – the complex journey of special needs. We pride ourselves on providing current, reliable, and relevant information to parents who need guidance; and we will continue to work to be the go-to resource for all things special-needs related.
Today, we would like to take a moment to share with you a workshop that we will be hosting next week (Tuesday, September 13th from 7-8:30pm at the Treatment and Learning Center in Rockville, MD) – Understanding SSI/Medicaid and SSDI/Medicare. This workshop is one in a series of presentations that we have designed to help parents deal with all the challenges associated with raising a family with special needs.

Understanding SSI/Medicaid and SSDI/Medicare: A Summary
Navigating through the complex world of government benefits can be tricky, time consuming, and overwhelming. Often, due to a lack of understanding, (and a lack of clarity in government language) families often apply for these benefits with incomplete documentation, and/or make errors during the application process. Aside from being frustrating, these mistakes can be costly; they can prolong the amount of time it takes for your child to receive these benefits, and can sometimes jeopardize your child’s eligibility.
The “Understanding SSI/Medicaid & SSDI/Medicare” workshop is designed to help families reach a greater understanding of the types of government benefits programs available; these benefits are explained in clear, concise language – we spend time discussing what exactly the government benefits and programs are, their importance, when to apply, how to apply, how to qualify, and how much money the individual with special needs may possibly receive. We will discuss the process of transitioning between SSDI (Social Security Disability Insurance) and SSI (Supplemental Security Income), and how to keep Medicaid and/or Medicare without the government benefits of SSI or SSDI. We also briefly touch on work incentives, and how they assist beneficiaries with their employment efforts.
This seminar extremely valuable presentation can provide clarity to those struggling with these confusing issues, and ensure that you possess the information and resources needed to secure government benefits for your family member with special needs now and in the future. M&L Special Needs Planning, LLC helps families apply for government benefits of SSI and SSDI, and have had success overturning appeals.
