In this section, learn about common ways to get more money:

  • Work

    For most people, working means more money, more independence, better health, new skills and new relationships.

  • Social Security

    Social Security disability benefits are monthly cash payments for people with disabilities.

  • Minnesota cash benefits

    If you don't have enough money to meet your basic needs or pay for child care, you might be eligible for cash assistance.
