If you need a copy of the survey mailed to you, or to speak with a staff person, call 1-800-692-7443.
There are three things that you can do to help protect SSI for children with disabilities.
- If you are a family member of a child on SSI, please complete the survey.
- Please distribute this Alert widely. If you are a family member or friend, advocate, teacher, case manager, supports coordinator, or other professional serving children with disabilities, please do what you can to reach out to parents and share the survey.
- Contact your member of Congress to let them know it is wrong to end or cut the SSI childhood disability program and remove essential supports from children with disabilities. You can click here to send a letter today.
