Alabama's ABLE program to help those who receive SSI

For those with disabilities, they can have a tougher time financially due to their illness or injury making it difficult for them to work or make ends meet due to medical expenses or other hardship. That's why disability assistance like Supplemental Security Income exists and is distributed to the appropriate parties. However, SSI must be sought out and it can even be further optimized by other programs aimed at helping those with disabilities and their families.

When people generally think of disability benefits, they usually think of a person of a certain age. While it's true that the elderly are known for being candidates to receive Social Security benefits, all ages could potentially qualify to receive the financial support. The reality is that some children are born at a disadvantage, that, being that they have some sort of disability, it will affect their ability to achieve certain things and it will put additional costs on his or her caretaker. That being said, a child could be a candidate to receive Supplemental Security Income.
