SOCIAL SECURITY & Disabilities
[LaDisabilityTalk] How Social Security Decides if you are disabled! (FOA MEDICAID and others too!)


Social Security is not the only program that uses Social Security criteria to
determine disability for qualifying.

The Family Opportunity Act Medicaid Buy-in program and others also use the
Social Security criteria. 

Therefore, it's important for us to know how that works...

THIS IS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS alike so families need to be informed.
