Flyers

  • This important flyer, developed by the NJ Department of Human Services, is applicable for persons with a disability who have Supplemental Security Income (SSI). When the individual's mother or father retires, or if the parent becomes disabled or dies, this flyer describes the process by which the "disabled adult child" (DAC) can continue to receive Medicaid. However, if the process described in this flyer is not followed, the DAC would likely lose Medicaid benefits and, therefore, access to DDD services would also be jeopardized.

  • This flyer, developed by the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities, describes the process by which individuals who are employed and are eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) may continue to be eligible for Medicaid coverage when their earnings are too high to continue to receive SSI.
