Aid to the Blind (AB)
The State Aid to the Blind program provides cash assistance to eligible low-income Colorado residents. Individuals must be from birth to age 59, determined disabled due to blindness by a medical doctor, and be unable to work for a minimum of 6 months.
Applicants for Aid to the Blind must apply for Social Security benefits. Medicaid is NOT a benefit of this program. Aid to the Blind is available to eligible individuals regardless of race, color, sex, and national origin, religious or political beliefs.
To get started, our office must receive a completed Application for Assistance including:
- Proof of disability (AB-5)
- Social Security number for each individual applying
- Application for supplemental Social Security Income
- All AB grant money received prior to SSI approval must be reimbursed back to the County (IM-14)
- Proof of lawful presence and a signed affidavit for applicants 18 years and older
Once the application is received, an appointment is scheduled for an interview with an Intake Program Specialist to determine eligibility. Verification of income, resources and expenses may also be required to process the application for assistance.
