The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) protects people with physical, mental, and developmental disabilities as well as others with serious health limitations.
If you have a disability that makes it hard for you to apply for benefits or meet program requirements, you have the right to request and receive extra help without the need to give us your medical papers/proof of your condition.
