If you or someone close to you suffers a serious long-term or permanent disability, you may have a severe financial hardship that also affects your family.
Disability benefits may not be enough to make ends meet. There are some states that offer supplemental benefits to help those who have a disability. Each state is different, so it can be confusing to understand what, if any, additional benefits you may be eligible for.
To help you get started, we have a listing below of states with supplemental disability benefits. Of course, some states do not offer any supplementary disability benefits. These states include, but are not limited to, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Some states offer better than average benefit supplements to Social Security disability. These are the states we have noted below. Keep in mind that individual benefit amounts will vary based on your specific living situation, household income, and cost of living adjustments.
In addition to the benefits provided to someone by the Social Security Administration, these states may provide:
- Alaska - Residents may receive $45 to $521 per month
- California - Residents may receive between $20 and $412 per month
- Idaho - Residents may receive between $52 and $473 per month
- Iowa - Residents may receive between $22 and $480.55 per month
- Kentucky - Residents may receive between $65 and $520 per month
- Nevada - Residents may receive between $24.27 and $391 per month
- New Jersey - Residents may receive between $10 and $363.36 per month
- New York - Residents may receive between $23 and $694 per month
- North Carolina - Residents may receive between $97 and $887 per month
- Vermont - Residents may receive between $48.38 and $223.94 per month
- Wisconsin - Residents may receive between $83.78 and $179.77 per month
Remember, the exact amount you could receive in your state will depend on multiple factors. These factors may include your household income, your living arrangements (whether you live alone, with family members, etc.), and other criteria.
If you live in a state that does not provide supplemental benefits, you may still qualify for other benefits, such as food stamps and Medicaid coverage. Check your state website to learn more about the benefits you may qualify for.
