In this training the presenters, authors of the Clearinghouse Review article "Children's SSI Benefits at Risk... Again", will give a brief overview of children's SSI, including the evolution of the childhood disability standard and the significance of the benefit to children and families; discuss the threats to the program; survey enrollment trends from the past decade; and look ahead to possible changes, with special attention given to what the legal services community can do.

The presenters will also cover what may be on the horizon for Continuing Disability reviews (CDRs), highlighting how it may affect child beneficiaries, and how legal services can advocate for clients in these cases to ensure that children with disabilities do not lose needed benefits.

Presenters:
Rebecca D. Vallas, Staff Attorney - Community Legal Services, Philidelphia, PA
