Garrett's House is dedicated to the support, advice, and education of a genetic skin condition called Epidermolysis Bullosa or EB for short. Currently there is no cure or effective treatment for EB. Please take a moment to learn about EB, and how you can support others who struggle with EB everyday. Garrett's House also honors the memory of those who lost their brave fight against EB. Please check out the Garden of Angel to learn more about the precious butterfly angels.

Disability and SSI (Supplemental Security Income)

Disability and SSI (Supplemental Security Income)

Some with EB apply for SSI Disability.  It can be a long and frustrating process at times.  Below are link to where you can find out more about SSI and applications to apply for SSI.  It is important to have good documentation of your EB and take pictures of your wounds to send in as well.  Sometimes its the difference between reading about EB and actually seeing the wounds of someone with EB that will get an application approved.  

Here you can find the Electronic Booklet for adult  Disability Benefits.

Here is the adult on-line application

Here is the booklet for child disability benefits
