Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita and Social Security Disability Benefits
Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita (AMC) is a phrase used to describe a group of congenital disorders that affects joints and muscles throughout the body. In addition to the hard work, support, and dedication that it takes to raise a child with a serious health condition, it can also require a certain level of financial stability.

Families who cannot afford to provide their child with the necessary medical attention may be eligible to receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI)—a type of disability benefit offered by the Social Security Administration (SSA). These benefits can help pay for a child's medical care and day-to-day expenses. The following article will teach you about SSI benefits and will help prepare you to begin the application process.
