What is it?

The Departmental House of Handicapped People ( MDPH ) is a place of information and support for people with disabilities present in each department. It allocates specific allowance to disabled people, depending on their situation.

For example, the Disabled Adult's Allowance (AAH) guarantees a minimum income.

Please note : There are 102 departmental houses for disabled people in France.

To receive aid, you must fill a file . This sheet explains how to put together your file.

Please note : If you want to contact an MDPH, there is a free call number that you can call.
>> To find out the MDPH number for your department,you can click here and choose the house in your department (eg: for the Rhône, choose "69 - MDPH du Rhône").

First of all, you must complete a mandatory form. You can find the form at an MDPH or on the internet by clicking here.

Please note : This form is intended for the person concerned, that is to say the person with a disability.

  • If the disabled person is under 18, it is their parents who must complete the form.
  • If the disabled person is over 18 years old, it is advisable that their guardian or "curator" (the person responsible for their protection) accompany them during their request.

You will also need to attach these documents to your form:

  • A photocopy of both sides of proof of the person's identity (valid identity document or residence permit in France),
  • A photocopy of proof of address less than 3 months old,
  • A medical certificate of less than 6 months (provided for MDPH requests),
  • A certificate of judgment in legal protection (if applicable).

Please note : If you have any difficulties, do not hesitate to ask the MDPH teams for help.

When your file is signed and complete, you can send it by mail or drop it off at your MDPH reception.

After analyzing your file, you will receive a confirmation email . In the event that your file is incomplete, an email will be sent to you asking for the missing information.

It is from this stage that the multidisciplinary team (doctors, psychologists, etc.) assesses people's situations, identifies their needs in order to propose an appropriate response.

Please note : Within the MDPH, it is the Commission for the Rights and Autonomy of Persons with Disabilities (CDAPH) which decides on the rights of the disabled person. It is based on the evaluation carried out by the team made up of professionals in several health fields.
