    it depends on your disability.  There are 'supported housing' programs for people with intellectual or psychiatric disabilities.  This can be as little as meeting with a support counselor monthly to help you  manage.

    SSA can assign you a payee who will pay your bills for you, but you lose control over the money.  A professional payee will take a small amount of your benefit as a fee.

    If you belong to a church, you can ask them for help.

    In my state, agencies like ARC will not provide assistance unless you have a developmental disability...you have to have a disability that agency covers.

    The CILs in my state leave a lot to be desired, they need help themselves due to poor cognitive skills.

    Bankers are good at being careful with money. A friend or family member who appears very rational, calm, and without money problems, also may be someone to talk with. Avoid irrational spending and vices like gambling, drinking, and drugs.
