SSI and Children

Posted on:9/4/2012
Before the Social Security Act was passed, one-fourth of the States did nothing at all for crippled children.


Before the Social Security Act was passed, one-fourth of the States did nothing at all for crippled children. In many other States the appropriations were so small that only a small number of the hundreds of thousands of crippled children throughout the country could receive care.

 

The Social Security Administration, through its Children's Bureau, cooperates with the States in the three child-health and welfare programs. In all these programs the United States Treasury handles the Federal money concerned. Before passage of the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, a child applicant was subject to a fourth step in the eligibility determination process, referred to as an individual functional assessment.

 

Under the Social Security Act the Federal Government participates in three maternal and child-welfare programs: (a) Maternal and child-health services; (b) services for crippled children; (c) child- welfare services. These services are only a part of the total children's program within each State. They are included in the Social Security Act because the basic purpose of these services, like that of aid to dependent children, is to make it possible for a child's own family to nurture him through the years of childhood.

 

The role of the Federal Government in these programs is to strengthen the State programs. To this end, it aids the States in the extension and improvement of services for mothers and children. The Children's Bureau, which is one of the four operating bureaus of the Social Security Administration, is responsible for cooperating with the States in these services.
