Head’s up — MassLegalHelp is getting a new look!

At the beginning of March, we will be relaunching this website with a brand-new look. You may notice some things moved around, but our main content will stay the same. We hope the improved design will make it easier to find what you are looking for.


Emergency Aid to the Elderly, Disabled, and Children (EAEDC)

Reviewed May 2023

EAEDC is a cash benefit for adults with disabilities, caregivers, and some children who are not able to get TAFDC (Transitional Assistance for Families and Dependent Children).

EAEDC is a state benefit. It is different from SSI, which is a federal benefit. You cannot get both at the same time.
