Who is Eligible?

Eligible individuals can open the account for themselves, or an authorized individual can open an account on their behalf. There are a few requirements that individuals with disabilities must meet to be eligible for an account.

You are eligible if:

  • You were diagnosed with a disability before the age of 26

AND

  • One of the following is true:

    • You are eligible for, or you receive, SSI or SSDI because of your disability.

    • You experience blindness as determined by the Social Security Act.

    • A medically determinable physical or mental impairment with marked and severed function limitation that has lasted, or is expected to last, at least 12 continuous months or result in death.

    • You have a similarly severe disability with a written diagnosis from a licensed physician that can be produced if requested.

 

Did you know?

Proof of eligibility is not required to open an account. You will self-certify during the enrollment process and re-certify annually. You should maintain a record of your diagnosis, benefits verification letter or other relevant documents in the event that you are required to prove eligibility at a later date.
