Navigating the various public benefits available for children and adults with disabilities can be extremely challenging for families. Government agencies have differing disability and financial eligibility criteria. Many times, parents are overwhelmed by the various systems and often do not even know what questions to ask.
Jim Huyck, Advocate/Consultant for Public Benefits, is the guest speaker at the April 21, 2014 meeting of The Orange County Asperger’s Support Group. He will discuss accessing public benefits including SSI, SSDI, SSDI/DAC, MediCal, MediCare and more.
The meeting is intended for individuals with Asperger’s Syndrome, High Functioning Autism or PDD-NOS and their family members.
