Disability.gov: A New Name and Much More!



This month, Disability.gov invites visitors to enjoy new and improved site features. You?ll find the government?s official website for people with disabilities ? formerly called DisabilityInfo.gov ? easier to navigate and search thanks to:
  • A faster, more accurate search engine
  • New social media tools ? like Twitter and an RSS feed
  • A ?Suggest A Resource? section on the homepage
When launched in late July, these new features will allow you to receive information the way you want it ? via Twitter, an RSS feed or by searching the site. In addition, you will have a chance to contribute to Disability.gov by clicking ?Suggest A Resource? on the homepage and adding websites or other resources you find useful and want to share with others. Your suggestion may become part of the site?s comprehensive information for over 50 million Americans with disabilities and their families, caregivers and employers. You can also subscribe to receive daily, weekly or monthly updates about new information on Disability.gov.

Disability.gov provides quick and easy access to information about disability programs, services, laws and benefits. You will still be able to search by topic, such as ?Housing? or ?Education? and, if you need local information, you can use the site?s new ?Information by State? drop-down menu to learn about your State?s programs.

Remember to also search GovBenefits.gov?s 50 disability-related benefit programs. To find them from the homepage, use the ?Benefits Quick Search,? select ?Disability Assistance? and click ?Go.?

To get the most up-to-date information, follow either website on Twitter at: www.twitter.com/Disabilitygov and www.twitter.com/GovBenefitsGOV.
