The Arc submits statement supporting Supplemental Security Income benefits for children

On October 27, the House Committee on Ways and Means, Subcommittee on Human Resources held a hearing on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits for children. The hearing looked at trends, program growth, and recipient outcomes in the SSI program for children. The Arc strongly supports SSI benefits for children and was pleased that a family from The Arc of Kentucky, Katie Bentley and her son Will, attended and were asked questions during the hearing. Last week, The Arc submitted a written statement for the hearing record, urging Congress to support and sustain SSI benefits for children with disabilities.
