How to Stop DCF from Taking Children’s SSI/Social Security Benefits

May 16, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Did you know that every month DCF takes about $500,000 of foster children’s SSI and Social Security survivors’ benefits and funnels the money into the Massachusetts general fund?  Please join national and local experts to learn what you can do to protect these federal benefits for children and families.  We will discuss SSI and Social Security eligibility requirements, DCF’s obligation to screen and apply for benefits; recent changes to DCF regulations regarding its handling of children’s benefits; and legal and practical strategies for ensuring SSI and Social Security payments are conserved for the benefit of children and families.  Our expert presenters include:  Amy Harfeld, National Policy Director at the Children’s Advocacy Institute in Washington, D.C., and local experts Rick Glassman and Linda Landry from the Massachusetts Disability Law Center.Approved for 2 CAFL CLEs.
