About Aid for Aged, Blind, and Disabled

The AABD Program provides cash assistance for individuals who are 65 or older, blind, or disabled. Eligible individuals receive a certain amount of cash each month to help pay for everyday living expenses. The amount an individual receives is based their unique circumstances such as, living arrangements, income, and resources.

If anyone in your home is over 65, or blind, or disabled (including a child), they may qualify for health coverage benefits under AABD Medicaid. Check out our Medicaid page for more information.
