Social Security Application Assistance
Individuals that are homeless or at-risk of homelessness that also have or will soon get a diagnosis of a mental or physical condition that will prevent them from working for 12 months or longer are a priority to receive assistance applying for Social Security benefits.

Individuals, not currently homeless or at-risk of homelessness, that have a disability that prevents them from working for 12 months or longer and are receiving at least one of the following state programs may also receive assistance applying for Social Security benefits depending on staff availability:


  • • General Assistance
  • • Group Residential Housing (GRH)
  • • Minnesota Family Investment Program (MFIP)
  • • Diversionary Work Program (DWP)
  • • Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA)
  • • Title IV-E Foster Care

Assistance may also be provided to current SSI and/or SSDI disability recipients to maintain their SSI and/or SSDI disability benefits when Social Security requires a Continuing Disability Review.
