The Aid to the Aged, Blind, or Disabled (AABD) payment program provides cash payment to persons who are blind or disabled based on Social Security rules. In order to be eligible for an AABD payment, the applicant(s) must meet certain tests, including resource and income tests. 

The state disability program provides a cash payment and medical coverage for a disabled or blind person who cannot receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) due to their disability which is expected to last less than 12 months. A person must have received a disability denial of “lack of duration" from the Social Security Administration in order to apply.
