“Secure Your Financial Future: A Toolkit for People with Disabilities”

Recognizing that April is Financial Literacy Month, the United States Department of Labor Office of Disability Programs (ODEP) has announced the development of the “Secure Your Financial Future” toolkit, with guidance for people with disabilities who are “seeking or maintaining employment and economic stability.”  As Assistant Secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy Taryn M. Williams explained: “’We all need clear information to secure our financial wellbeing, especially in light of the challenges of the past two years.’” The tool kit provides pointers on how to achieve financial well-being, based on where an individual is on their employment path, from preparing for a job, to maintaining a position, changing or losing a job, or retiring. It includes tools and resources to meet financial goals.
