Social Security Disability Benefits for Children & Families

If you are struggling with a disability that prevents you from working, it can be challenging to support your family. It might comfort you to know that your dependants may be eligible to receive Social Security family benefits.

Providing for Those You Love

At the Law Office of Ellene Welsh, we help families obtain the Social Security Disability (SSD) benefits they need to survive. A local law firm, we proudly represent clients in the Douglasville, Columbus and West Georgia areas. Call us at 770-489-3456 to schedule a free initial consultation.

Social Security Disability Family Benefits

If you qualify for SSD or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, your minor children may also receive benefits. This financial assistance helps you meet your children’s basic needs for food, clothing, shelter and other necessities. SSD family benefits are determined based on how much you have paid into the system through contributions. SSI payments are paid at a fixed rate determined by state regulations.

In addition to minor children, the following individuals may be eligible for benefits:

  • Disabled widows
  • Disabled widowers
  • Adult children with disabilities
  • Caretakers

SSD family benefits claims are handled at local Social Security Administration offices. A skilled lawyer can help you navigate the complicated system and work to get the assistance you deserve.

Attorney Ellene Welsh has been practicing law since 1988. She is well-versed in gathering the necessary documentation, writing persuasive briefs and appealing any claim denials. Drawing on her concrete experience, attention to detail and knowledge of SSD laws, our firm can help you and your family get the benefits you need.

To arrange a free initial consultation, contact us online or call our office at 770-489-3456.

Our firm handles Social Security Disability family benefit cases for a minor child or an adult child on a contingency fee basis. That means you pay no attorney fees until we secure financial assistance for you.

When I first got my review denial letter from SSA and had to appeal I was crushed...I contacted several lawyers and no one wanted to take my case. I contacted Ellene Welsh law firm and spoke with Annette and told her about my situation(she spoke with Attorney Welsh) they agreed and took my case. Let me tell you, they are so thorough...they took the time to explain everything to me each step of the way and obtained all medical records, worked endlessly with my SSA hearing officer, and help ease my anxiety. I'm happy to write after a long battle I received a fully favorable decision with no hearing!! If you need a office that will work tirelessly for you then look no further...Thankyou so much to Attorney Welsh and Annette...

I had tried to get my disability first with a different lawyer and was turned down. When I called thier office to ask about an appeal they said they couldn't help me and was very rude and hung up on me. Found another lawyer who did my appeal was turned down. I called Ellene Welsh and her and her staff were very nice and helpful. Of course it was during the pandemic so we had to do things differently but she helped me and I won my case. Anytime I had a question they were very helpful and nice. If I could just say if you need a great lawyer with a great staff call her. They will fight for you. Love them.

I became a client of Ellene's 3 years ago. When I first met Ellene she took a great deal of time to go over my denied paperwork from Social Security. She explained it was not a quick process and we would be looking at least another year to eighteen months before a hearing. She explained every step! When I had questions Becky and other office staff were always there to walk me through my questions and ease my mind and at times frustrations. Never along this journey did I feel ignored or abandoned. Ellene's staff got all my records together for my hearing and thanks to their hard work we got an immediate decision. It is very rare, I knew it was a good case going in, but Ellene made sure every "I" was dotted and every "T" was crossed. She was excellent in front of the judge and knows what she is doing. It was her 20 plus years experience that makes her so good! I can't thank Ellene and her staff enough for all their time, hard work and dedication in helping me with my case. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a Social Security Disability Attorney.
