Financial Resources

What financial benefits are available? 

Financial benefits for children and adults with disabilities primarily come from Social Security. There are two types of benefits from social security, one is based on the person or their parents work history(SSDI- Social Security Disability Insurance or SSDAC-Social Security Disabled Adult Child), the other is not, and is designed to meet basic needs (SSI- Supplemental Security Income). 

Those ineligible for benefits from social security may be able to recieve Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) or Aged, Blind or Disabled (ABD) cash benefits from DSHS.
