Consider a parent disabled for purposes of a child's entitlement as a grandchild if:
The parent was receiving title XVI benefits at the time specified in GN 00306.235A.1. on the basis of a disability; and
The statutory basis of disability is identical to section 223(d) of the Act; i.e.,
the former State definition of disability is not the basis of title XVI eligibility.
An individual receiving title XVI benefits based on blindness or visual impairment
does not automatically meet the disability requirements of section 223(d). Submit
such cases to the Disability Determination Services for a disability determination
under section 223(d) of the Act.
