Special Needs ABC’s: Advocacy, Benefits, and Conservatorship
Did You Know?
A child with a disability such as Down Syndrome, Autism, Fragile X and others, or a parent with Alzheimer’s or Dementia may be eligible to receive a federal and state benefit that pays YOU the custodial family member up to $4,000 a month? This benefit is many times not income dependent.
Sounds too good to be true, right?
Well, here’s the scoop:
The government wants people to be cared for in their homes. The alternative is more people in institutions supported by, guess who…the government. So they have made provision to assist families to keep and care for their loved ones at home.
Did You Know?
Though this benefit has been in effect for many years, the majority of families with disabled dependents have NEVER heard of it. We refer to it as the “secret service”. The benefit no one knows about.
Did You Know?
Though this program is Federally Mandated in order to provide care, very few people actually receive the full amount of the services that they are eligible for by law. Dealing with government bureaucracy is especially daunting when facing it alone. A lack of knowledge of the law results in many eligible persons being denied services.
