Interested in connecting with other Miracle League families for support?

The Smith family, parents of Rockies’ player Blake, would like to share their story of how they arrived at their new normal in their life.

Blake, nicknamed “Scooter”, is a Miracle League 2-sport athlete who not only plays for the baseball Rockies, but also stars on the soccer pitch for the Rhinos.  And that’s not all.  Blake is also a star on the ice at City National Arena, where he plays for the Vegas Golden Knights Junior Adaptive Hockey team (sled hockey).

People with disabilities are a vibrant and vital part of our communities. According to the most recent US Census, there are 56.7 million people in the US living with disabilities, accounting for nearly one-fifth of the total population. That means it’s incredibly likely that you or someone you know and love is currently living with a disability.

Unfortunately, living with a disability can make it difficult to find and keep work. In 2016, the Bureau of Labor Statistics found that people with disabilities had an unemployment rate of 10.5 percent, more than twice the rate of those people who do not have a disability.

Having a disability can also come with a hefty financial burden, especially if you require regular medical care, durable medical equipment, and/or a companion to help you navigate daily life.

Still, there are resources out there to help folks with disabilities cover their medical costs, supplement their income, and save money on everyday items. That’s why we’ve put together this guide to help you find ways to keep get cash back and save on the things you need.

Here’s what you’ll get in this guide:

  • A guide to navigating Social Security benefits
  • Information on health insurance
  • A list of ways to save on housing and upgrades to make your home more accessible
  • Tips for saving on everyday items, travel, and entertainment
  • A list of organizations that are helpful resources for people with disabilities

Social Security benefits for people with disabilities
The federal government offers two main financial assistance programs to people with disabilities.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
The first is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). You can qualify for SSDI if you have worked under Social Security long enough and recently enough before becoming disabled. Essentially, you earn credits for making a certain amount of income annually.

This year, if you earn $1,320 in wages or from self-employment, you receive one credit. The maximum number of credits you can receive annually is four. To qualify for SSDI, you must have earned 20 credits in the last 10 years.

In order to access SSDI, you can complete an online application, call their toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 or TTY 1-800-325-0778 for folks who are hard of hearing, or visit your local Social Security office. There are certain conditions that will qualify you automatically. If you don’t have one of those conditions, you may still qualify. SSDI only covers full disability and long-term conditions that meet the following criteria:

  • You cannot do the work you did before because of your disability
  • You cannot adjust to other work because of your condition
  • Your condition has lasted or is expected to last more than one year or result in death

Determinations are made based on your application, your medical records, and, for those who are still working, whether your recent income is less than $1,180 per month. Your application may be expedited through the Compassionate Allowances if you have certain cancers, adult brain disorders, or rare children’s disabilities.

You may also be able to qualify under special circumstances if you are blind or have low vision, if you’re the widow or widower of a person who qualified, if your child is disabled, if you haven’t worked but became disabled before the age of 22, or if you’re disabled army veteran.

If you do qualify, you’ll receive monthly assistance that can be direct deposited into your bank. The amount you receive is based on your average lifetime earnings before you became disabled and typically ranges from around $700 to $1,700 per month.

Social Security benefits for people with disabilities
The federal government offers two main financial assistance programs to people with disabilities.

Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI)
The first is Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI). You can qualify for SSDI if you have worked under Social Security long enough and recently enough before becoming disabled. Essentially, you earn credits for making a certain amount of income annually.

This year, if you earn $1,320 in wages or from self-employment, you receive one credit. The maximum number of credits you can receive annually is four. To qualify for SSDI, you must have earned 20 credits in the last 10 years.

In order to access SSDI, you can complete an online application, call their toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 or TTY 1-800-325-0778 for folks who are hard of hearing, or visit your local Social Security office. There are certain conditions that will qualify you automatically. If you don’t have one of those conditions, you may still qualify. SSDI only covers full disability and long-term conditions that meet the following criteria:

  • You cannot do the work you did before because of your disability
  • You cannot adjust to other work because of your condition
  • Your condition has lasted or is expected to last more than one year or result in death

Determinations are made based on your application, your medical records, and, for those who are still working, whether your recent income is less than $1,180 per month. Your application may be expedited through the Compassionate Allowances if you have certain cancers, adult brain disorders, or rare children’s disabilities.

You may also be able to qualify under special circumstances if you are blind or have low vision, if you’re the widow or widower of a person who qualified, if your child is disabled, if you haven’t worked but became disabled before the age of 22, or if you’re disabled army veteran.

If you do qualify, you’ll receive monthly assistance that can be direct deposited into your bank. The amount you receive is based on your average lifetime earnings before you became disabled and typically ranges from around $700 to $1,700 per month.

Supplemental Security Income (SSI)

The other federal program is Supplemental Security Income (SSI). SSI helps disabled folks, elders over the age of 65, and people who are blind who have little to no income. For folks who have not had prior work experience or have not been able to work recently, this may be the only benefits option available for you.

You can use this online screening tool to find out what benefits you may be eligible for. Should you decide to apply for benefits, you’ll follow the same steps as you would for SSDI. You can complete an online application, call their toll-free number at 1-800-772-1213 or TTY 1-800-325-0778 for folks who are hard of hearing, or visit your local Social Security office.

You’ll be asked to provide information about your medical history as well report your income. For the purposes of SSI, folks with disabilities must meet the following requirements:

  • Are over 65 to meet the age requirement
  • If you qualify as blind meaning:
    • You have a central visual acuity for distance of 20/200 or less in your better eye with use of a correcting lens, or
    • You have a visual field limitation in your better eye, such that the widest diameter of the visual field subtends an angle no greater than 20 degrees.
  • If you qualify as disabled meaning you have a medically verifiable physical or mental condition that:
    • Means you cannot earn substantial income from work
    • Can be expected to result in death
    • Can be expected to last or has lasted for a continuous 12-month period

If you meet the disability requirements, your income will be the next determining factor. To qualify, you cannot exceed the Federal Benefit Rate (FBR) which is currently $750 per month for an individual or $1,125 per month for a couple.

If you meet this requirement then you will receive payments of the FBR monthly, again meaning that you’ll get $750 per month as an individual or $1,125 per month as a couple.

Both of these programs also offer incentives to folks who want to work again and are on the path to doing so. These can include things like extending your access to Medicare, covering impairment-related work expenses, and a safety net for folks who phase out of the program by earning “substantial” income, but have months where they do not earn enough money to meet that requirement. You can find a comprehensive list of these incentives here.

Government health insurance for the disabled
Medicare

First, let’s talk about people with Social Security benefits. If you receive SSDI, it’s likely that you have or can eventually get coverage through Medicare, a free or low-cost health insurance program that is available to people over 65 who have paid taxes into the program and people with disabilities.

However, there is a 24-month waiting period from the time you qualify before your Medicare coverage begins. If you’re in that waiting period, you may be able to sign up for Medicaid another free or low-cost government insurance program.

Medicaid

If you receive SSI, your insurance coverage will vary based on the state where you live. In some states, you may automatically be enrolled in Medicaid when you qualify for SSI.

In other states, you are guaranteed to qualify for Medicaid, but you still have to apply for it. And, in a few states, you’re not guaranteed eligibility but are still likely to receive Medicaid. Check here to find out the rules where you live.

If you don’t receive either of these benefits, but still meet the definition of disability by SSI standards, you might still be able to get access to Medicaid. This may be your situation if you qualify as disabled, but make too much income to receive SSI.

Federal regulations require that states must cover people who are severely impaired, have qualified for SSI and Medicaid before, but now earn to much income to qualify for SSI. They also must cover people over the age of 18 who became disabled before 22, but no longer qualify for SSI.

States make their own determinations beyond that, and some may cover folks with disabilities who wouldn’t otherwise qualify for Medicaid.

In order to receive Medicaid, you will need to apply with your state. You can find a list of state Medicaid websites here. You will need to provide information about yourself, your dependents, and proof of your monthly income.

Affordable Care Act (ACA)

Lastly, if you don’t qualify for Medicaid, you may be eligible to find a plan through the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA provides federal subsidies for people at 100 to 400% of the federal poverty line to make healthcare more affordable.

As part of the ACA, insurance companies may not reject you for a pre-existing condition including disabilities. You can apply for ACA coverage through your state’s marketplace, which you can find here.

Housing aid for people with disabilities
We’ll start by talking about federal grants you can receive to help you with housing.

Housing Choice Vouchers
Under the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Housing Choice Voucher program, local Public Housing Authorities (PHA) can offer rent and housing assistance to low-income, non-elderly families living with a person with disabilities.

The vouchers cover difference between an individual or family’s monthly rent and 30% of their monthly income.

Based on your local PHA’s specifications, you may be required to live in specific housing projects or you may be allowed to select any safe, accessible, and reasonably priced home in the private market. You can find your local PHA here.

While the vouchers are typically used for rental assistance, some PHAs allow qualified folks to use their vouchers towards home ownership. For instance, New York Stateallows you to use your voucher towards the purchase of a home if you’re a first time homeowner.

They require that you take a class in homeownership, that the home meets certain requirements, and that you arrange for a private inspection of the home. They can assist you with your mortgage or with making a down payment.

Tax Deductions

Under Topic Number 502, if you itemize your deductions using Form 1040 Schedule A, the IRS allows you to deduct any medical expenses you have over 7.5% of your annual gross income.

That means if you make $50,000 in a year, you can deduct any medical expenses you make that exceed $3,750. This includes making home renovations to make your house or apartment more accessible.

Americorps Rebuilding Together

Rebuilding Together is a volunteer-run program that offers help to folks who need assistance building or repairing their homes. They pride themselves on assisting folks with disabilities in building homes and making them more accessible.

In 2016, 50% of the homes they built or repaired had one or more disabled person living in them. You can find your local affiliate here.

Housing assistance for disabled veterans
There are five federal grants you can receive if you are an honorably-discharged disabled veteran.

  • Home Improvement and Structural Integrity Assistance (HISA). Lifetime grants up to $6,800 are available for veterans with service-related disabilities and veterans with non service-related disabilities rated up to 50% service-related. Those veterans with non service-related disabilities can receive up to $2,000. Grants can be used to make entryways and exits accessible, make bathroom and kitchen facilities more accessible, improve plumbing and electric for medical equipment installation, and more.
  • Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) and Special Housing Adaptation (SHA). These grants help people with service-related disabilities to either build an accessible home or adapt an existing home to be accessible. Qualifications for each vary based on your disability. For SAH, you must own the home and live there permanently, while for SHA the home may belong to a family member and you must live there permanently. For 2018, SAH grants run up to $81,080 and the SHA grants max out at $16,127. You can only use the maximum amount three times.
  • Temporary Residence Adaptation. You may also be eligible to receive a grant to adapt a family member’s residence where you’ll be living temporarily. The maximum you can receive through SAH is $35,593 and through SHA is $6,355. These grants do count as one of your three usages.
  • Specially Adapted Housing Assistive Technology. The VA is authorized to distribute up to $1 million dollars in grants to eligible disabled veterans to adapt their homes with new assistive technologies such as voice-command software and assistive feeding devices. The maximum grant per person is $200,000.

Veterans can also check out The Wounded Warrior Home Project which provides transitional housing and assistance with the housing search for disabled veterans. Fill out an application here.

Mobility and medical equipment savings for the disabled
Medicare

If you have Medicare Part B, insurance that covers services and equipment not covered by Part A, your plan covers 80% of the cost of durable medical equipment which includes walkers, wheelchairs and mobility devices, crutches, beds, lifts, and much more.

You may be asked to rent the equipment or may have decision between renting and buying. You cover 20% of the costs of the equipment.

Medicaid

If you have Medicare and Medicaid, Medicaid can cover the 20% portion of your equipment that Medicare does not cover. Medicaid plans vary by state, but most will cover all or nearly all of the cost of necessary equipment. Find your state’s plan here.
