Join National Disability Institute and Bank of America as we discuss measuring the financial capability of persons with disabilities. Financial Capability is defined as building knowledge and skills for informed decision making about budgeting, money management, credit, debt, and savings that lead to tangible improvements in an individual’s financial health and stability.

For persons with disabilities, there are additional indicators to be considered when measuring financial capability. This webinar will identify NDI’s Financial Capability Indicators for Persons with Disabilities and explore new tools and strategies that organizations can use to improve the financial capability of persons with disabilities.

Webinar objectives:

  • Define financial capability
  • Define and understand financial capability indicators for persons with disabilities

  • Understand the connection between financial capability and employment goals
