So, once a person has been approved for SSDI, ( social security disability income) what other benefits are available? Not necessarily through SS, but through state, or other organizations? I'm trying to help someone, but am at a loss.
Medicare/medicaid, food stamps, home energy help program, housing subsidy, and if they have children they are eligible for a whole slew of additional programs. But this does vary according to state and sometimes county.
Well the thing about Medicare, once approved for SSDI there is a 24 Month Waiting period.
So Medicare may not be in the picture if just getting approved.
Medicaid possible IF the income level is low enough and I mean LOW.
OH ya With the approval of Food Stamps you then can get one of those Free Cell Phones with 250 minutes free each month. LOL
