Disability Discounts from your State Office (DMV, Assessors office, etc.)

by K Henderson
(Durango, Colorado, USA)

There are special discounts on license plates, plate renewal, property taxes, park passes, etc.

Each state is different and you need to show your proof of disability, but for 50% or more military disability OR SSI/SSDI disability license plates and property taxes are either free or at a discount depending on the percent of disability.

I have never heard of a state OFFERING these services freely. You have to ask for them and know what to ask for.

Nobody seems to ever volunteer any information on the programs. Most states also do energy assistance and telephone assistance for the disabled at a higher rate than to the regular public ~ but again....make sure you ask because they won't offer it freely.

In Alabama if you are disabled, you can get a form from your county courthouse or online, fill out your part and have your doctor sign his part, then take the form to your county courthouse to obtain a lifetime fishing license for $1.

disability determination
by: Susan

You would need a disability determination which is an evaluation done by a State agency which decides if you qualify for disability programs. DHS is probably a good place to start. Disability determination has to be redone every 1-7 years.
