AABD Medical programs help the following adults:

  • A disabled adult child who is 18 or older and became disabled or blind before age 22. The person does not receive SSI because their social security benefits are higher than the SSI amount.
  • "Qualified severely impaired individuals" who receive SSI based on Section 1619 of the Social Security Act. Their earned income and assets are not counted, but their unearned income is.
  • Adults who receive Social Security Disabled Widow/Widowers' benefits, who do not live in group care homes, and who meet certain rules.
