Most of the individuals served by EEDA (East End Disability Associates, Inc.) and other Long Island agencies receive government funding in the form of Medicaid and Social Security benefits. Family members and advocates of disabled adult children need to ensure that current or future funeral arrangements preserve, and do not jeopardize, eligibility for these benefits.

 The importance of putting plans in place
