Supporting a person with a developmental disability can be complicated and challenging, but support is available. Sometimes it is a matter of knowing what programs are available, how to apply, and how to appeal a denied claim.
At Taylor & Lihn, PLLC in Phoenix, we are passionate about helping people plan for, apply for, and receive all benefits to which they or their loved ones are entitled. If you are responsible for caring for a loved one with a developmental disability, the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) offers support and services that can help. Our attorneys can help you with an application for DDD benefits and can also help you with an appeal if your application was denied. We’re here to help you navigate the appeals process so you can get the support you need.
Call (602) 900-9860 to find out about filing a DDD appeal and your other options.
Eligibility for DDD benefits will vary depending on the applicant’s age. Younger applicants, below the age of six, may be eligible for benefits if they are at risk of developing a disability. Older applicants must provide evidence that their disability started before the age of 18. The Arizona Early Intervention Program offers additional help for children under the age of three.
DDD benefits are available to persons with the following developmental disabilities:
- Cerebral palsy
- Intellectual (cognitive) disability
- Autism spectrum disorder
Eligibility will be redetermined at the ages of 6 and 18.
