The Aid to the Blind (AB) program serves people under age 60 who have at least a six-month total disability that precludes them from working. The goal of the program is to provide interim financial assistance while waiting for approval of Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Medical assistance is not provided under this program.
In Colorado, AND financial benefits are accessed through an EBT Quest Card, which works like a debit card at a grocery store checkout counter or ATM and is kept secure with a private pin number.
Old Age Pension (OAP) provides financial assistance to residents ages 60 or older with little or no income and may provide medical assistance for eligible applicants.

Any other income, such as Social Security benefits, Supplemental Security Income, Veteran’s Assistance, etc. may reduce the amount of OAP benefits.
