Have any of you applied for Social Security for your children? My son is considered DD now, and will be starting a special ed pre school when he turn three. It looks like he will have a long term care plan. I cannot afford to do everything he needs, and I was looking into applying for social security for him. I have no clue what it is like, and if he will qualify. I plan on speaking to an expert, but I was just wondering if any of you had any advice.
