Aid to the Aged, Blind, & Disabled
Cash assistance for people age 65+, blind or disabled, are U.S. citizens or legal immigrants, and live in Illinois. The income guidelines and benefit amounts are determined on a case-by-case basis (generally based on poverty guidelines, but family costs for certain items are considered). Countable asset limits are $2,000 for an individual and $3,000 for a couple. People eligible for AABD can also obtain Medicaid and SNAP (food stamps). Apply at a county office of the Illinois Dept. of Human Services or through the ABE website online.
