Fundraising Tips for Children who Financially Qualify for SSI

Sometimes, children who have certain medical conditions are eligible for SSI and SSI related Medicaid. These programs provide for very basic needs including direct medical coverage (Medicaid) and cost of food, shelter and clothing (SSI). These programs do not cover costs that exceed the basic needs of a medically fragile child. If your group is raising money for such a child and give this money directly to the family, you may jeopardize their eligibility for these programs. Any money that is given to the family must be reported to these programs and could result in a loss of benefits. To avoid this problem, and still help your family, please consider the suggestions below.
