I'm not really ready to out myself on the internet, hence the name, but Chris J's point applies to people with income WAY, WAY above SSI/SSDI limits.

I'm a GS-13, make a little under six figures, and have been looking at buying a place. However, I was just diagnosed with a degenerative neurological disorder. Lots of stuff that I had been looking at doesn't really make sense for me to buy anymore. I probably need to buy a condo in an accessible building with an elevator. It should be near transit, but probably should have parking, because I will likely be able to drive longer than I'll have stamina to take transit.

I certainly don't think the government owes me anything and I function just fine right now, so I shouldn't qualify for any programs for the disabled. However, I was kind of amazed to find how little there is to buy in DC for less than 600K that does not involve flights of stairs. I was really surprised actually at how little there was. There really is a shortage of accessible housing in general.
