Register here for this webinar.

On the heels of last month’s content-rich webinar on how organizations can promote financial wellness of individuals with disabilities, DETAC heard from many people asking for a deeper dive into tackling the complexities around work incentives and benefits planning.  

Join this webinar and hear how ACL 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 will hear from grantees and others 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.
