Purpose

WheelchairThis program provides financial assistance only to people who are disabled and not able to work 12 months or more OR are disabled 6 months or more AND their disability substantially precludes the person from working at ANY job. It has no medical coverage. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 – 59. This program supplements income up to $217.00 per month as of September 1, 2018.

Resource/Asset Limit:

The asset limit is $2,000.00 for a single person and $3,000.00 for a couple. Exempt assets include the home the applicant lives in and one automobile. Life insurance up to $1,500.00 in face value is not counted as well as pre-need burial plans that cannot be sold.

Additional Requirement:

All applicants must apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) through the Social Security Administration. They must also verify their disability and its length by asking their medical provider to complete a special State form. This form is given to applicants at the time of interview.
