Understanding Social Security Benefits For Kinship Children

September 13, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EDT

As a Kinship caregiver, finding financial support to care for your family is a top priority. Many caregivers may not realize that the Social Security Administration offers benefits in certain situations that can be used to care for Kinship children. This webinar will focus on topics such as what is needed and how to obtain a child’s social security card, what are the qualifications for disability payments, benefits for children of deceased parents, and any additional benefits available to Kinship families. Kay will be available to answer questions following her presentation, so please plan to attend!

Please note: Although this LIVE webinar is designed to be an informative, educational, and helpful resource for kinship families caring for relative or fictive kin children, anyone is welcome to attend including foster parents, professionals, students, or community members.
