Social Security Disability Insurance is a program administered by the Social Security Administration for individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria as established by the Social Security Administration. Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you you qualify.
Health care benefits for adults and children with disabilities whose incomes are too high to be eligible for MassHealth Standard. Benefits offered are similar to those offered under MassHealth Standard. There are no income or asset limits regardless of age, but beneficiaries whose income is above 150% Federal Poverty Level (FPL) will pay a monthly premium based on income. The disability for CommonHealth must be determined by the Social Security Administration or MassHealth. Call SHINE for details.
