Lancaster County General Assistance has guidelines regarding eligibility for assistance through our program. One of the guidelines addresses SSI/SSDI applications. All General Assistance clients must apply for SSI/SSDI if they are unable to work due to physical and/or mental health reasons. You must also have a Medicaid application on file at the Department of Health and Human Services. If you do not have a current open SSI/SSDI application on file at Social Security office, you will be required to do so and provide proof of application to the General Assistance office. If the initial SSI/SSDI applicant is denied, you must file for a reconsideration of the denial. If reconsideration is denied, you must file for an appeal. You must continue to appeal any SSI/SSDI denials until you are not eligible to file anymore appeals on the initial application. You must also have a current Medicaid application on file at Department of Health and Human Services and provide proof of application.
In addition, you must also have a current Doctor’s statement on file regarding your inability to work. If you do not have a Doctor’s statement on file, you are required to do an active job search for employment using General Assistance Employment forms. If you are in a Drug and/or Alcohol Treatment Center, you must have a current letter on file regarding your treatment status to include your ability or inability to work.
In accordance with General Assistance guidelines, your General Assistance case could close if there is not current SSI/SSDI and Medicaid applications on file and/or if you do not appeal SSI/SSDI denials in a timely manner, and if there is not a current Doctor statement, Drug and/or Alcohol Treatment letter(s) or active job search. You may also be financially responsible for any and all services provided.
