  • Selective Service for Men with Disabilities. Young males who are age 18, have a disability and live at home must register with Selective Service if they can reasonably leave their homes and move about independently. A friend or relative may help a disabled man fill out the registration form if he can’t do it himself.  See more information about registering with the Selective Service System.
