Financial Capability, Asset Development, and Work and Tax Incentives

Financial education and asset development are critical to improving the economic self-sufficiency of all workers, and may be especially important for people with disabilities. Learning how to stretch wages further, invest wisely, avoid debt and plan for retirement is essential to avoiding the poverty level income connected with most disability benefit programs, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Income (SSDI). Furthermore, several work and tax incentives exist to reduce disability- and work-related costs, such as medical expenses or reasonable job accommodations. Some work incentives can even be used to provide capital for people with disabilities interested in starting their own business.

The following resources provide more information about financial education, asset development and work and tax incentives:
