For your child to be eligible for child's benefits s/he must be under the age of 18 and have a physical and/or mental condition(s) that results in "marked and severe functional limitations." This means the condition(s) must very seriously limit your child's activities.
For a child to be eligible for child's benefits, the child's family must also have limited financial resources. These financial resource limitations are similar to those for SSI.
