I need more info: how old is he, has he ever worked, what are the assets?

SSI is a needs-based, welfare program. Persons with assets or income over certain levels cannot qualify.

If he has worked, he may be eligible for a Disability Insurance Benefit.

Understand that a diagnosis is not enough, his illness must be so severe that he cannot perform any substantial work.

Contact the Social Security Admin & an attorney with your son.
