Are their any benefits or programs once you are diagnosed with Aspergers/autism spectrum?

I've had SSI for almost 2 years from my bi-polar. I now have a 12 page report that shows my IQ, childhood, and all my traits/symptoms. So I got the most official diagnosis you can get. With SSI, I am coming up $100 a month for my rent and having to borrow it from my parents. I wonder if adding autism spectrum would give me more benefits. I'm struggling in many ways. I was told that there is job assistance I can get and I want to do that. But right now I need my life to be in order financially and mentally. Also there isn't a therapist for Aspergers anywhere near where I live. And I don't think medicaid pays for therapy anyway. Stuck and frustrated, but at least I am relieved knowing what was wrong all those years, never keeping a job and basically having zero relationships/friends in my life. I can't even look people in the eye. I read something about eye contact therapy.
