Hi all,
I'm curious as to how having children, step-children or caring for grand children affects the outcome of applications for disability. Please vote to see the results of the poll.

Is there a way to keep this recirculating so more people will participate in the poll? I don't want to be annoying, but also don't want to to drop off the "recent" list of postings.

I think during my hearing the judge asked me if I had any children or pets. I'm assuming there would have been follow-up questions if I did have people or animals to take care of.

Caring for children is very demanding and it is 24/7. A lot does depend on the age of the children and how others help you care for them. Some impairments play a bigger role than others. For example, if your impairments affect your ability to walk, stand, bend, grasp, push and pull, etc then there are some things that you would have to have others to do for you when caring for the child. Having mental impairments can also affect a person ability to care for children. If someone helps you care for your children, how often, for how long and how they help you is important. It would be a good idea for the person to fill out a Third Party form. Medical and non medical evidence and the details of how your impairments affect your ability to functions is vital. Most people with children under 18 are under 50. When someone is under 50, if SSA finds that they can't do their previous work, they look at their ability to do jobs in the national economy.

Child rearing is not a Medically Determinable Impairment.  Child care may indirectly affect the case if the applicant's Residual Functional Capacity will/will not allow the activities of child care.  

The Dictionary of Occupational Titles classifies the position of Child Monitor (301.677-010) as semi-skilled, medium work.  If the applicant can perform semi-skilled medium, or sedentary work, s/he may be allowed, or denied, after consideration of past relevant work.  

So we are back to the basic questions - How does the MDI restrict function? Child care is not an issue except to give some idea of RFC.

Additional Info: My Different Perspective comes from a lifetime of being near, working with and for those with disabilities, working for the Easter Seal Society, working for the Disability Determination Services (20+ years) and working as a case assistant to an attorney who, until he retired, worked on SSA disability cases exclusively and have attended approximately 185 Hearings. I have great empathy for the truly disabled and greater antipathy for those who try to game or scam the system. With my background, I quickly make distinctions between the two. I am ready to admit my error as soon as the evidence proves me wrong. Any posts I make are based on my experience, memory and current research. Anything, particularly opinions, I post should be verified by someone who has access to the entire case record and not just selected shorts offered by those seeking information, preferably by a competent attorney or non-attorney representative who thoroughly understands SSA law.
