The Marriage Penalty
Self-Advocate Diana Stolfo continues her tireless work to eliminate the marriage penalty. Diana and her fiancé Matt met at The Arc's CHILD Center when they were just infants. They want to marry but cannot because they will lose vital benefits. For Diana and Matt and others with all types of disabilities marriage can mean losing their care, their home and not having enough money to repair their wheelchair. H.R.6405 - the Marriage Equality for Disabled Adults Act would eliminate some of these barriers. Diana tells her story in the first video and couples from around NJ gather for a commitment ceremony to shine a light on the issue in the second video.
The Omnibus spending bill passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden on December 29, 2022 requires that Medicaid resume eligibility processing as of April 1, 2023. This means that the COVID protections that prevented Medicaid terminations will no longer be in place. Medicaid recipients will start receiving redetermination packets to determine eligibility and must respond.
