More Resources

Here’s a long, rather important, list of Everything No One Ever Tells You About Living on Social Security Disability

Many areas have local organizations and groups that assist people in need. Your local area agency on aging can be a great resource (call here even if you are young). Also try contacting your Aging and Disability Resource Center (in some areas this is the same as the area agency on aging). You can also try contacting Centers for Independent Living in your area, or directly reaching out to senior centers, religious groups, and local charity groups.
