The Social Security and Supplemental Security Income disability programs are the largest of several Federal programs that provide assistance to people with disabilities. While these two programs are different in many ways, both are administered by the Social Security Administration and only individuals who have a disability and meet medical criteria may qualify for benefits under either program.
Social Security Disability Insurance pays benefits to you and certain members of your family if you are "insured," meaning that you worked long enough and paid Social Security taxes.
Supplemental Security Income pays benefits based on financial need.

Reverse mortgages are designed for homeowners age 62 and older. These types of loans are called “reverse” mortgages because the lender makes payments to the homeowner. To qualify for this loan, the home must be your main residence.
Unlike conventional mortgages, there are no income requirements for these loans. Reverse mortgage borrowers do not need to make any monthly payments for as long as they (or in the case of spouses, the last remaining borrower) continue to live in the home. When the last borrower moves out of the home or dies, the loan becomes due.
Please contact us for more information and contacts for reverse mortgages.
USDA Rural Development Housing & Community Facilities Program
Purpose: The Very Low-Income Housing Repair program provides loans and grants to very low-income homeowners to repair, improve, or modernize their dwellings or to remove health and safety hazards.
Eligibility: To obtain a loan, homeowner-occupants must be unable to obtain affordable credit elsewhere and must have very low incomes, defined as below 50 percent of the area median income. They must need to make repairs and improvements to make a dwelling more safe and sanitary or to remove health and safety hazards. Grants are only available to homeowners who are 62 years old or older and cannot repay a Section 504 Loan.
The amount of the grant is based on the applicant’s ability to repay (USDA loan), and must be used in conjunction with the Repair and Rehabilitation Loan. The lifetime maximum grant amount is $7,500.00.
Loans and grants can be combined for up to $27,500.00 in assistance.
