My son is 8 years old and was diagnosed with autism when he was 2 years old. I have never tried to get ss for him and im not sure what the requirements and regulations are on this matter

Hi Christine,

It could be for one of two reason. The first is if he does not meet the qualifications explained in the Blue Book. You can go over the Autism listing with your son's doctor to make sure he does and that you have enough proof.

The second reason could be that you exceed the income limits. SSI has strict household income limitations that must be met. You can find them here:
