Event description

Description

Upward to Financial Stability provides education and training to spread financial awareness and conduct financial literacy training to individuals and families to raise expectations for people with intellectual and other developmental disabilities to develop financial assets.

Why is this important?

  • North Carolinians with intellectual and other developmental disabilities (I/DD) struggle to get by, make ends meet, and be part of the economic mainstream.

  • Only 30% of North Carolina residents with disabilities are working compared to 70% of nondisabled peers.

  • More individuals with disabilities (30%) live in poverty compared to those without disabilities (14%).

  • Many individuals with disabilities have never managed a budget, applied for an assistive technology loan or understood how to build assets.

  • Approximately 50% of adults with disabilities do not use banking services, and nearly 50% of people with disabilities have no savings.

  • This initiative supports NCCDD's Goal 1 of the new Five Year Plan: Increase financial security through asset development for individuals with I/DD.

The material is present in eight modules.

The mission of National Disability Institute is to drive social impact to build a better economic future for people with disabilities and their families. Topics include:

Module 1: Money

Module 2: Financial Capability and Access to Financial Serivces

Module 3: Earned Income Tax Credit and Free Tax Preparation

Module 4: Credit Matters

Module 5: Continuum of Housing

Module 6: Social Security Work Incentives

Module 7: Self-Employment and Public Benefit Work Supports

Module 8: Protecting Your Identity


Module 1 - Module 4 will be covered on Saturday, November 4th.
