Employment Specialist Supplemental: Financial Literacy Training
Monday, June 4, 2018 10:00 am - 1:00 pm
Location: RGCG ACT Center, 530 Salina Road, Sewell, NJ 08080
Description: Financial literacy and money management training is a critical component that is often missing from job preparation for individuals with disabilities. Earning a living through employment is often cited as the road to independence, but proper management of those earnings is how we access our needs, wants, items, and opportunities. This supplemental will focus on the foundational elements of financial literacy, including: assessing money values, creating person-centered monetary goals, conservative budgeting, retirement plans, Social Security benefits considerations, and more. Participants will leave the session with increased knowledge of financial literacy and many ways to disseminate these topics to the individuals they serve, regardless of academic level.
