Increased Amount of Money for Seniors and those with Disabilities

The House of Representatives in Pennsylvania passed a bill that will help seniors and those with disabilities. It will now be sent to the House of Senate after it received a vote of 194-4 measure in the House of Representatives and will become law once Gov. Josh Shapiro will sign this into law.

In a published article in WKOK, the bill aims to increase the state’s property tax and rent subsidy for seniors and people with disabilities. Additionally, it will also increase the income eligibility cap to expand the program.

Furthermore, this will also increase the amount of money that seniors and those with disabilities will receive. Moreover, the bill also seeks to increase eligibility by increasing the income cap for renters and homeowners to qualify.

According to the same source of the report, the bill is said to follow Gov. Shapiro’s budget proposal. This will increase the maximum rebates for seniors from $650 to $1,000 and bump the income cap of renters and homeowners to $45,000.

Additional eligibility requirements under the new bill include the following:

  • Pennsylvanians age 65 and older
  • widows and widowers age 50 and older
  • people with disabilities aged 18 and older are eligible for the rebate program

According to the sponsors of the new bill, this will help an additional 173,000 people in Pennsylvania once this becomes a law. Furthermore, the cost of living adjustment is also included in this rebate program.
