Education Followed My Advice to Win
SSI Benefits for her 10 Year Old Daughter
And How You Can Get Your Hands
on this Insider Information
If you have ever tried to win SSI benefits for your child with disabilities, you know what a hassle you’re in for. The average child SSI case takes close to 3 years start to finish. SSI demands that you fill out dozens of pages of confusing forms. Even worse, they send out page after page of complicated evaluation forms and questionnaire forms to your child’s friends, relatives and teachers.
What are SSI Claims Representatives Looking For?
None of these forms have any instructions about how to fill them out, and, until now, you would have no way to find out what SSI was really looking for.
- SSI claims representitives are looking for “magic words” - information that will result in a favorable decision
- Unless you are an SSI employee or other “insider,” you’ll never discover the secrets of winning your case
- Your case will be denied automatically if your Child SSI claim form is filled out incorrectly
- Every year, thousands of deserving child SSI claims are denied because there were mistakes with the claim paperwork
- Most child SSI claims are denied two, three, four or more times before being approved
Secrets to SSI Success
Hello. My name is Jonathan Ginsberg and I am a lawyer who helps deserving children and adults recover SSI and Social Security disability benefits. I have prepared two special reports about winning child SSI disability benefits. Both of these reports are free of charge to you.
The first report is called “Seven Secrets to SSI Success.” It is a short report, but it contains powerful “big picture” information. Violate any of these seven rules, and your child case will be disapproved. You’ll find this report a few paragraphs below on this website.
The second report (also available to you at no charge) is somewhat longer. It is entitled “Insider’s Report - How SSI Claims Adjustors Decide Child SSI disability cases.” This report is essential reading for anyone who is trying to recover child SSI benefits. Because it is a fairly long report, this report is available to you by email. You can request this email report by going to the top of this web site and clicking on my picture.
I am also going to tell you about the third part of the puzzle - my new Child SSI Answer Guide. My Guide contains over 170 pages of sample forms, letters and other child SSI information. It is the same guidebook I use in my office to complete SSI forms and win Social Security cases for clients I represent.
If you order my Guide, I’ll send it to you on an easily searchable CD (a hard copy is also available). The Child SSI Guide gives me a significant advantage when I represent children applying for SSI benefits, and if you want those same advantages, you can now have them. I’ll tell you more about my Guide in a minute.
Taken together, the “Seven Secrets” report, the “Insider’s Report” and the Child SSI Disability Answer Guide provide you with the tools and information you need to win your child’s SSI case and to win early.
Now, your “Seven Secrets” report...
The Seven Secrets Revealed
I now want to reveal to you seven secrets about how I win child SSI claims and how you can apply these secrets to your case.
Secret One - Medical Listings
Secret One - Find the right medical listing for your child’s case.
If you want to win your child SSI case, you need to speak SSI’s language. SSI has decided that your child’s disability must fall within one of their categories. For child listings, there are 14 categories:
- Growth impairment - covers children who don’t grow properly
- Musculoskeletal - covers back, joint and limb problems
- Special Senses and Speech - covers visual and hearing problems
- Respiratory System - covers breathing problems
- Cardiovascular system - covers heart problems and blood pressure problems
- Digestive system - covers problems digesting food, liver disease and bowel disease
- Genito-urinary system - covers kidney or liver disease
- Hemic & lympatic system - covers anemias (including sickle cell), blood clotting diseases and leukemia
- Endocrine system - includes thyroid, pituitary and other glandular diseases
- Multiple body systems - includes Down’s Syndrome and other genetic diseases, miscellaneous problems that cause problems functioning
- Neurological - includes epilepsy, cerebral palsy, brain tumors, seizure disorders, other neurological conditions
- Mental disorders - includes a range of mental health problems
- Neoplastic disorders - covers cancer and tumors
- Immune system disorders - covers lupus, HIV/AIDS, connective tissue disorders and other immune system problems
For each of these 14 body systems, SSI has decided what it takes to prove that your child is disabled. Usually, SSI requirements look to the results of medical tests. Sometimes, they look to activity limitations.
When you fill out SSI’s forms, you must know what you are trying to prove.
You can learn more about how to find the body system that applies in your child’s case, and how to use this information to win. If you haven’t already done so, get this information in my free email report - Insider’s Report - How SSI Claims Adjustors Decide Child SSI Cases. Go to the very top of this web site and click on my picture
Secret Two - Collecting Medical Information
Secret Two - SSI does not always do a very good job in collecting medical information. You have the right to request records from your child’s doctors and to submit these records to SSI.
It may come as a surprise to you that SSI has somewhat relaxed rules when it comes to collecting evidence. You can and should collect a comprehensive medical file and send copies of all medical records to SSI yourself.
My child SSI Disability Answer Guide contains copies of the letters you can use to request medical records from your child’s doctors, and it contains sample letters for you to submit these letters to the SSI claims representative so that all records become part of your child’s file.
Secret Three - Third Party Information
Secret Three - SSI requests information about your child from his teachers, babysitters and other adults who have interacted with your child.
Many of these people will not know what to do when they receive a five page questionnaire from SSI. You can help your child SSI case by helping these teachers, babysitters and friends know how to answer the forms correctly.
My child SSI Disability Answer Guide contains copies of all the third party questionnaires sent to teachers, babysitters and friends along with sample answers. With these sample forms, you can help these people give the answers that will help win your child’s case.
Secret Four - Severe & Significant Activity Problems
Secret Four - Your answers to the questions on the child SSI forms must describe severe and significant problems that your child has in getting through the day.
When you review the 14 body systems set out in the child SSI listings, you will see that most of the listings require proof that your child’s ability to get through the day has been severely limited. You have to prove that your child has activity limitations. If your answers to SSI’s questions on their application forms do not describe significant activity limitations, SSI will most likely deny your claim.
The “Insider’s Report” email will help you understand the various terms SSI uses in deciding cases. If you have not already requested this valuable free report, go to the top of this web page and click on my picture.
The Child SSI Disability Answer Guide contains sample answers for each and every child SSI form. You can use my sample answers as guidelines for answering your child’s forms, using language that clearly claims severe limitations. You will not have to guess what to say.
Secret Five - Medications
Secret Five - You must have an accurate and updated list of the medications that your child is now taking along with a list of previous medications.
SSI has a staff of medical doctors whose job it is to review all claims filed. SSI doctors pay a great deal of attention to the medications that your child is taking. Your application paperwork must contain information about medication side effects and about previous medications that did not work. Sometimes medication problems are enough to win a case.
My child SSI Guide explains exactly how to fill out SSI’s “current medications” form and how to explain about medication side effects.
Secret Six - Regular Medical Treatment
Secret Six - your child must see the doctor regularly.
SSI expects that your child is having regular visits with his doctor or therapist. In general, they believe that if your child is not going to the doctor, there is nothing wrong with him.
My child SSI Disability Answer Guide shows you how to fill out SSI’s “recent medical treatment” forms and how to explain to your doctor what he can do to help your case.
Secret Seven - Lawyer Problems
Secret Seven - Many Social Security lawyers will not take SSI cases because it is hard for them to earn a fee. You should be prepared to win your child’s SSI case on your own.
SSI has strict rules governing how lawyers can get paid in SSI cases. Many of these rules serve to discourage experienced lawyers from handling child SSI cases under a contingency (no fee unless you win) contract. In some cities, if you want a lawyer, you will need to pay $2,000, $3,000, $4,000 or more up front.
If you cannot find a lawyer to help you, you need to be prepared to fight for your child’s SSI benefits. If you do end up with a lawyer for, his job will be made easier if your application was filed correctly and the medical record is updated.
The “Insider’s Report” email explains the checklist that SSI claims adjustors use when deciding child cases. If you have not yet requested this report, you can get it by scrolling to the top of this web page and clicking on my picture.
If your child is truly disabled, my child SSI Disability Answer Guide will help you build a solid case, whether or not you use a lawyer and give you a real opportunity to win a favorable decision early.

Here is what my customers are saying about my Disability Answer Guide:
Here’s How I Helped A Single Mom With an 9th Grade
Education and No Medical Training Win Her
Daughter’s SSI Case
(If SSI has already denied your child’s benefits, this story may be like your own.)
Tammy was born in 1990 and from the time she was a toddler, she was always full of energy. Tammy’s mother, “Susie,” is a single mom who left school in the 9th grade when she got pregnant. When I met her, she was working two jobs to make ends meet.
When Tammy was three years of age, the day care center where she stayed the day called Susie and asked that she find another place for Tammy as she was hitting and biting the other children. Over the next three years, Tammy was registered at, then kicked out of four other day care centers.
When Tammy turned six, her mother enrolled her at the local public school. Within just a few days, Tammy was in the principal’s office for disrupting the class and for hitting the teacher. The school guidance counselor recommended Tammy and her mother to a school psychologist who diagnosed Tammy with ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder).
Over the next three years, the psychiatrist at the local mental health center prescribed a number of different medications - some of which made Tammy sleep all the time, others had no effect and others seemed to make her condition worse. Finally, on the advice of Tammy’s homeroom teacher, Susie filed a claim for child SSI benefits in October, 1998. In November, Social Security sent Susie 16 pages of forms. They included Form SSA-3820 a 12-page document consisting of 10 sections and over 30 questions -- and Form SSA-3881 - an 8 page document containg 11 questions about Tammy’s medical history and treatment.
SSI also sent out Form SSA-5665 (teacher questionnaire) to Tammy’s current teachers and they sent the same forms to Tammy’s previous teachers. Susie know that the teachers had received forms from SSI because one of Tammy’s old teachers called to ask Susie how to fill out the form.
Susie was not at all sure what to do. As a result, Susie’s forms were a mess. The two biggest problems with her application were a failure to completely describe Tammy’s activity limitations and a failure to list all of Tammy’s medicines.
Susie also did not know how to help Tammy’s teachers fill out their forms.
Three months after mailing in Tammy’s applications, Susie received a form notice - “Claim Denied.”
A sad situation for Susie, and especially for Tammy.
Here’s something equally as sad: The problems Susie faced collecting information and filling out the forms are common. Susie’s case is the rule, not the exception.
Susie came to see me in my office six months after receiving Tammy’s denial notice. I told her that she needed to file another claim and I gave her a copy of my Child SSI Disability Answer Guide, and told her to let me know what happened.
Susie used the sample forms in my Child SSI Disability Answer Guide to re-apply for Tammy. This time, Susie knew that SSI was looking for evidence of Tammy’s limitations in two of the six “areas of functioning.” Susie asked Tammy’s doctor to write a letter explaining how Tammy’s medications had not controlled her condition and that caused signficant side effects. Susie also printed out the “functional limitation” chart I had given her (that you will find in the “Insider’s Guide” email report) and asked Tammy’s homeroom teacher to write a letter describing Tammy’s behavior problems using the terms and phrases from the chart.
Susie also showed Tammy’s teacher the sample SSA-5665 Teacher Questionnaire from her Guide along with my suggestions about how to complete this form.
Susie also learned from my Child SSI Disability Answer Guide that she could not assume that SSI would find all of Tammy’s doctors. She discovered that two of the psychologists who had evaluated Tammy had moved office locations and that SSI’s had never received any information from them. Susie updated the addresses and mailed copies of these missing medical records herself.
Susie used the sample forms in her Child SSI Disability Answer Guide to fill out the 12 page Form SSA-3820 - Disability Report Child and the 8 page Form SSA-3881 - Questionnaire for Child Claiming SSI Benefits. She also used the sample Form HA-4632 to list Tammy’s medications, including the side effects.
Susie mailed these documents to the SSI claims adjustor and waited for a response.
Two months passed before Susie got her answer. This time, I am pleased to report, Susie and Tammy got much better news in the mail - an approval. Susie now receives a monthly check from SSI and Medicaid eligibility for Tammy.
Fortunately, you don’t have to wait for months and months like Susie and Tammy. Instead, you can follow the sample forms in my Child SSI Disability Answer Guide (Click here to order), where I give you the answers SSI looks for -- and the “magic words” that will get your claim approved.

All the SSI forms you need to process your disability application. They include your
- Child Disability Report - including sample forms for ADHD, Learning Disabilities and Asthma/cardiac

- Dozens of filled-in sample documents so you see exactly how your forms should look, complete with “magic words” and phrases Social Security decision-makers look for when determining whether to approve your benefits.
- Real-life examples of claims my clients won! I have searched my files and found three excellent examples of favorable decisions. These will help you see how Social Security judges think and how they analyze evidence. I had “marked up” these decisions with my own notes so you can follow the judge’s analysis -- so you see exactly what the judge found convincing. Since you, too, are looking to win your claim, you’ll find these decisions invaluable. What’s more, since Social Security decisions are not public documents, I can release these documents to you only because my clients have given me their written permission.
When you follow the step-by-step recommendations in my Child SSI Disability Answer Guide you’ll know how to…
- Fill out forms in minutes, not days. Susie could have filled out all the forms in about an hour, rather than needing four long weeks.
- Provide necessary facts, even when you don’t have enough space. Susie would have known that they could attach an extra page listing the names and addresses of Tammy’s doctors, rather than making yet another serious mistake on the application form.
- Find and list Social Security’s accepted symptoms. Susie could have described Tammy’s symptoms in terms of activity limitations like the examples included in the Child SSI Disability Answer Guide (Click here to Order) to speak Social Security’s language.
- Describe SSI’s accepted activity limitations. Susie would have known how to describe common activity limitations associated with Tammy’s hyperactivity. Plus, she would have known exactly where to list them on the forms and which limitations are the most important.
- Receive free medical evaluations. Susie would have realized that Tammy’s poor concentration and fighting in school were relevant “disabling” conditions. Plus, they could have used my recommended language to trigger Social Security to schedule a free psychological evaluation.
- Handle new information. Susie would have known how to add facts to Tammy’s application if new information came to mind after they mailed their form.
- Identify your “primary treating physician”. Susie would have known how to add information to Tammy’s application so she could identify her main doctor as the “primary treating physician”.
- Enlist your doctor’s cooperation. Susie would have been able to contact Tammy’s main doctor to alert him that SSI would be contacting the doctor so there would be no surprise.

If Social Security Denies Your Claim -- and You Request a Hearing, Your Disability Answer Guide Will Be Worth Its Weight in Gold
No matter what you do, the SSI claims adjustor will deny your child’s case. Your case may end up in a hearing before a Judge. They may be unusually complicated, you may have one or more prior applications that have been denied, or there could be a problem within the medical record. .
This raises the question: If your case goes to a hearing, does it really matter what you say in the SSI forms?
Absolutely! How your case enters the system -- and how SSI processes your claim -- is determined by how you answer your disability application forms. Using the Child SSI Disability Answer Guide (Click here to Order), you will know exactly what to say and how to say it. When you use this guide, you
- Help ensure your success. If your case goes to a hearing, your lawyer will thank you because your case file will be complete and accurate.
- Avoid costly mistakes. Since most claimants do not hire a lawyer until it is time to request a hearing, your lawyer will not have to “undo” any mistakes or errors you have made.
- Create stronger evidence. All the disability forms you complete for Social Security are part of your case file and are considered evidence at your hearing.
- Provide consistent answers. If your answers at the hearing are different from your answers on your disability forms, the Judge will ask you to explain why. When you use this Child SSI Disability Answer Guide, you avoid embarrassment by making sure your answers are consistent.
When You Use My Unique Child SSI Disability Answer Guide,
You Save Weeks Filling Out Forms --
You Save Months Waiting For A Decision!
Over the past 21 years, I’ve represented hundreds of disability clients who applied for Social Security Disability and SSI benefits. I’ve invested thousands of hours representing disability clients before Social Security Judges, many of whom today are my friends.
Because I an am experienced lawyer and I have had the good fortune to win most of my cases, I have a very busy law practice. My clients hire me at the rate of $250 per hour and they may pay me $2,000 to $5,000 to represent their disabled children if I accept their case under a contingency contract whereby I am paid 25% of their child’s past due benefits.
Some cases do require a lawyer like me because they are complicated or because there are problems with the medical record. Most cases, however, are just not that complicated. My feeling is that most child SSI cases could be granted by the SSI claims adjustor within a few months, instead of going to a hearing and taking two or more years.
The two free reports I have given you explain what SSI is looking for. My $39.95 CD Guide shows you word for word what to say.
I have assembled all the Social Security forms -- complete with time-proven answers -- plus detailed instructions and explanations -- into my Child SSI Disability Answer Guide (Click here to Order).
