The Social Services for Aged and Disabled Adults (SSAD) program provides help to persons who are age 60 or older, blind or disabled or live independently with support in their own home. In order to be eligible for services through SSAD, a person or married couple must meet certain tests, including resource and income tests. SSAD will only provide services that are not covered through Medicaid services or other programs.
SSAD is funded through Nebraska state funds and the Social Services Block Grant (SSBG). DHHS is required to file an annual plan which summarizes the programs and services offered by the SSBG.
