Since 2003, April has been designated National Financial Capability Month in the United States to highlight the value of high-quality financial education to improving Americans’ financial capability. People with disabilities need the same financial knowledge and skills as those without disabilities – to manage money, create a spending plan, effectively use banks, reduce debt, and use credit wisely. Financial capability is one facet of full participation in the community and people with disabilities have the right to control their money and make financial decisions. Learn about research and resources from the NIDILRR community and elsewhere to support the financial capability of people with disabilities.
