Disability Resources

Disabled persons and their families often face a special set of challenges that may be completely new to them. In answer to a widespread need for connection with the right disability resources, Disability Advisor provides in its easy-to-understand articles a wide range of information on topics as varied as housing, finance, personal injury suits, durable medical equipment, long-term or in-home care options, health insurance, and rehabilitation services or help staying on the job with an illness or injury. Some articles discuss money management skills to maximize disability benefits; others show how disabled persons can use tax-free savings plans like the ABLE Program or a Special Needs Trust to help meet their disabled child’s expenses without reducing Medicaid eligibility.
