The federal government, the state of Indiana, and local agencies and service organizations support people with disabilities. If you're eligible, various types of benefits can help you:

  • with paying the rent;
  • access health care;
  • provide you with direct support for getting dressed or eating;
  • assist with tuition or books if you're in college;
  • complete tasks in your workplace;
  • or even save for a car or a down payment on a house or business.
