Description of Service
Aid to the Blind (AB) provides a small cash assistance benefit to low-income residents who meet the Social Security Administration's definition of blindness. Aid to the Needy Disabled (AND) provides a small cash assistance benefit to low-income Colorado residents aged 18 to 59 who have at least a six-month total disability that precludes them from working.
AND/AB applicants/recipients must apply for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits. The goal of these programs is to provide interim financial assistance while waiting for SSI approval.
