People of all abilities deserve the fundamentals of financial empowerment: the ability to learn about finances, to be compensated fairly, to save and invest, and to have their assets protected.
About This Priority
Learning to manage financial resources. Earning an honest living. Saving some of our paycheck. Investing in assets to help us get ahead. Being protected against predatory financial services.
Although how we spend our financial resources looks different from person to person, these are some of the essential ingredients to financial well-being that remain the same for all of us. And for people with disabilities, community providers play a pivotal role in financial empowerment. Community providers support people to engage in financial education, build financial capability and make financial decisions—all of which are essential to helping people pursue their dreams.
