  1. I have a son, age 19, diagnosed with Autism at a young age. He has a caseworker through the Department of Human Services which has provided him with Medical Assistance health coverage. I was told by his case manager that now that he is 19 years old that he had to apply for Social Security. The case manager told me he will be denied, but that it was required of him to apply. I am trying to find out what form to file out in order for him to apply for Social Security benefits. Can someone please send me a link or directions on what form I need to fill out.
