If you are disabled, there are certain laws that protect your right to access goods and services. It is important to know what is available under the law so that you can make informed choices about how to live your life. Once you have a diagnosis of any kind, it’s important for disabled people with no income to learn more about their rights. For example, many states offer public benefits for low income individuals who do not qualify for Social Security or Medicare due to age or disability status. These programs include Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) , general assistance, food stamps/SNAP benefits as well as other federal grants .
