April Marks National Financial Capability Month

April marks National Financial Capability Month, so we want to share some important financial information from the Administration for Community Living (ACL)!

National Financial Capability Month was created to raise awareness of the importance of financial literacy — and the need for financial education — for all Americans.

From the ACL, understanding how to manage money is crucial to financial independence for everyone. For many people with disabilities, increased ability to manage personal finances also can increase their independence and help them to participate fully in their communities.

People with disabilities also need to know about programs and options that can help them save money; in fact, they may be eligible for an ABLE account, which is a tax-advantaged savings plan for people with disabilities.

ABLE accounts can help pay for education, employment training, food, housing, assistive technology, health & wellness expenses, and more!

Read the blog post: “A Conversation About ABLE Accounts with Jody Ellis” on the ACL website.
