Financial resources for people with disabilities

About 1 in 4 Americans has a disability that affects their cognition, hearing, mobility, vision or their ability to live independently, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If this describes you, and you have trouble making ends meet, a number of programs are available to help provide assistance for housing, medical bills and other expenses. Below are a few resources you can turn to for financial help.

Resources for food, housing and medical care

To reduce out-of-pocket costs for regular monthly expenses in the form of direct payments or subsidies, consider these resources.

Resources for specific financial situations

Consider these resources when you need help paying for schooling, modifying your home to make it more accessible or for whenever you have an emergency.

Education assistance for people with disabilities

Resources from national charities and organizations

Other financial resources for people with disabilities

Many financial institutions, nonprofit and government agencies offer financial assistance to people with disabilities. If you need help, reach out.

Be mindful that while aid is available, there may be a waiting period to become approved to receive your benefits. To make the process go faster and more smoothly, make sure you have all your documentation together. Having information like your income, job history and medical history at hand can make the paperwork go faster, so you can get the support you need sooner.
