Title: From Financial Education to Financial Inclusion: Bridging the Gap for Persons with Disabilities to Access the Economic Mainstream
Thursday, November 16th, 2017
People with disabilities and their families face unique challenges in making ends meet and planning for the future. Given the diversity of the disability community, some persons with disabilities may rely on public benefits as their main source of income. Without financial education to increase their knowledge and skills, individuals with disabilities may be prevented from achieving financial well-being. To address this challenge, a public-private collaboration was created to integrate financial education into select American Job Centers and community-based organizations to increase the awareness of financial education resources and tools for persons with disabilities and their families.
