What Does Disability.gov Do?

Disability.gov is the federal government website for comprehensive information on disability programs and services in communities nationwide. The site links to more than 14,000 resources from federal, state and local government agencies; academic institutions; and nonprofit organizations. You can find answers to questions about everything from Social Security benefits to employment to affordable and accessible housing.

New information is added daily across 10 main subject areas – BenefitsCivil RightsCommunity Life,EducationEmergency PreparednessEmploymentHealthHousingTechnology and Transportation.

Disability.gov is a web portal, which means every time you select a resource, you will be directed to another website. For example, a resource about Social Security benefits may direct you to the Social Security Administration’s website, www.ssa.gov. Disability.gov is not responsible for the maintenance of these resources or websites.
