Supported Decision Making and Money Management
June 15 @ 6:30 pm – 7:30 pm
Supported Decision-Making is a way for people with disabilities to make their own decisions, with support from people they trust, and be more in control of their lives and rights. Working and managing money can be difficult for some people with disabilities, especially those who receive public benefits like SSI, SSDI, and Medicaid. In this session, we’ll explore ways people can use Supported Decision-Making to manage their money, create financial goals in IEPs, work and earn money while maintaining benefits, create person-centered plans around money management, and use Powers of Attorney and ABLE accounts.
