I wasn't sure if I should post this here or not so I posted it on the Community Board first. My DD will be 18yo in July and with that, there come a lot of changes that we need to make. We know that we need to file for guardianship but can't do that with the court until after her birthday. That alone is enough with trying to get someone to "serve" her with notice, doctor appointment to fill out paperwork saying that she can't care for herself, "serving" our adult DD's in case they want to fight us for guardianship (they're not but the court says we have to do it)... I'm also trying to find out about other programs for her but it's impossible to get to speak to anyone. Everything is automated. I need to find out if and when we can apply for SSI on her behalf and if there are any other programs that she will qualify for. She has never been on SSI because of parent income/assets but recently was chosen for a waiver in our state and gets some respite care and Medicaid (All Kids in IL). She will continue to be covered under DH's insurance with his union and Medicaid will still be the second payer. Has anyone gone this road and is willing to help? Thanks!
