On the heels of last month’s content-rich webinar on how AoD grantees can promote Financial Wellness of individuals with disabilities, we heard from many of you asking for us to take a deeper dive into tackling the complexities around work incentives and benefits planning. So, ask and you shall receive! Participants heard how AoD grantees are building their internal competencies and partnering with other entities to assure that jobseekers and workers with disabilities are accessing accurate information and taking full advantage of work incentives available to them via Social Security. We heard from grantees who are managing programs designed to meet the reentry and financial coaching needs of formerly incarcerated people with disabilities, valuable partners that can assist with benefits counseling, and others who are pushing for improved systems, policies, and funding to assure greater access of people with disabilities to high-quality benefits planning.
