Benefits4Kids” was created as a master’s project for an M.Ed. degree in Special Education at University of Maryland by Hiroko Nishimura in April, 2014.  I hope this website will be especially informative for parents with children who have been suddenly hit with the financial and emotional demands of caring for children with severe disabilities due to events such as accidents and strokes.

This resource website is part of Burgundy for Life.

This website compiles webpage and resource links and information from the Official Social Security Website for easier access for parents and caregivers.
