A Forum on Financial Planning for People With IDD - The Arc

The ability to save is crucial in securing a life plan for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who often rely on public benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid, and housing and food assistance to pay for things that they need to live in the community. However, many public benefits have very strict limits on how much money you can have to qualify and keep the benefits. How do people know what public benefits they are eligible for? How can people save to buy the things they want and need when they have so little money to start with? What are special needs trusts and ABLE accounts, and when should people have one?

Improving Opportunities for Working People With Disabilities | Bipartisan Policy Center

Improving Opportunities for Working People With Disabilities: The Bipartisan Policy Center (BPC) has released a report, Improving Opportunities for Working People With Disabilities, focused on Medicaid Buy-In (MBI) programs. The report offers recommendations to improve availability of the MBI for workers with disabilities. To develop the recommendations, BPC reached out to stakeholders and hosted public and private discussions with experts on the topic. Participants included current and former state and federal officials, consumers, and other experts. The recommendations, focused on federal action, include "ways to make the Medicaid Buy-in for workers with disabilities more understandable, more accessible, and more relevant as states seek to ensure pathways to successful employment outcomes for these workers." BPC stresses, "the role of strong leadership at the federal and state level is key to the success of these recommendations."

FCC Launches Emergency Broadband Benefit Program:

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) has launched an Emergency Broadband Benefit Program to help households struggling to pay for internet service during the pandemic. This new benefit will connect eligible households to jobs, critical healthcare services, and virtual classrooms.

The Emergency Broadband Benefit will provide a discount of up to $50 per month towards broadband service for eligible households and up to $75 per month for households on Tribal lands. Eligible households can also receive a one-time discount of up to $100 to purchase a laptop, desktop computer, or tablet from participating providers if they contribute $10-$50 toward the purchase price.
The Emergency Broadband Benefit is limited to one monthly service discount and one device discount per household.

A household is eligible if one member of the household:
• Qualifies for the Lifeline program;
• Receives benefits under the free and reduced-price school lunch program or the school breakfast program, including through the USDA Community Eligibility Provision, or did so in the 2019-2020 school year;
• Received a Federal Pell Grant during the current award year;
• Experienced a substantial loss of income since February 29, 2020, and the household had a total income in 2020 below $99,000 for single filers and $198,000 for joint filers; or
• Meets the eligibility criteria for a participating providers' existing low-income or COVID-19 program.

The program has been authorized by the FCC, but the start date has not yet been established. The FCC is working to make the benefit available as quickly as possible. Please continue to check the program webpage for updates.
