A written statement from the participant’s physician or, in the case of a mental disability or incapacity, the individual’s psychologist or psychiatrist is required for verification.  This statement must include the number of hours of care needed per day, the number of days per week child care is needed, and the anticipated duration of the need for care.  The statement must include information that child care is necessary due to the adult’s incapacity.  Update this statement annually or more frequently according to the extent and expected duration of the incapacitation.  Receipt of Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability (SSA) does not, in itself, verify a need for child care due to the participant’s incapacity.
