Financial Stability

Financial Stability – What is it?

Financial Stability is a series of strategies that has the potential to:

  • help people with disabilities improve their economic stability,
  • decrease stress and financial crisis in an individual’s life
  • expand opportunities for community participation, and
  • positively impact an individual’s quality of life experience.

Why is it important?

  • The presence of a disability and the need to maintain a public benefit should not require one to forfeit their economic stability and live in poverty. Without knowledge, guidance, and encouragement, individuals are not empowered to earn, learn, save and build.
  • To a person with a disability, saving money and developing assets will produce choices that directly impact their quality of life.

It’s The Law!

The Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990

  • The Nation’s proper goals regarding individuals with disabilities are to assure equality of opportunity, full participation, independent living, and economic self-sufficiency for such individuals; 42 U.S.C. §1201(a)(8) (2005)
  • The continuing existence of unfair and unnecessary discrimination and prejudice denies people with disabilities the opportunity to compete on an equal basis and to pursue those opportunities for which our free society is justifiably famous, and costs the United States billions of dollars in unnecessary expenses resulting from dependency and non-productivity. 42 U.S.C. §1201(a)(9) (2005)
