Children With Disabilities: Social Security Benefits

Children With HIV Infection

Next » « Previous


Children with HIV infection may differ from adults in the way the infection is acquired and in the course of the disease. DDS disability examiners and doctors have been provided with extensive guidelines to use when evaluating claims for children involving HIV infection.

Some children may not have the conditions specified in the current guidelines for evaluating HIV infection, but may have other signs and symptoms that indicate an impairment that results in marked severe functional limitations. As indicated earlier, this kind of evidence may help show that your child is disabled for Social Security purposes.
