Be prepared! Access and review the forms needed to file a Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability claim for a disabled adult or disabled child.

The base application form for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) disability benefits, whether the applicant is an adult or a child, is the SSA-8000-BK. Because the application asks for a lot of detailed information, it can be very helpful to prepare a rough draft of this form to refer to when you file the application.

In addition to the base application, adults complete the same medical and occupational forms as for a Social Security disability claim. But if you are applying for a disabled child, complete the SSA-3881-BK instead. For a child’s claim, it can be helpful to offer additional information on the function report below that corresponds to the child’s age and to have the child’s teacher complete the SSA-632-BK. And, of course, an SSA-827 is needed to allow Social Security to gather information.
