She was born with the disability. Can we change from SSI to her deceased father's SS? How do I find out how much that would be? Would this disqualify her from some other benefits she receives under SSI?
Expert:  emc011075 replied 1 year ago.

If she was born with the disability, than yes she would qualify. How much it will depends on her father's social security credits and other circumstances. You will have to visit your local social security office or call 1-***-***-**** to find out. The application could take some time and there will be some documents required. I would advise to make an appointment at your local SSA office to sit down with a case worker who can explain the process in details, help you with the application and documents you will need.
