Asset Building Opportunities
Let’s talk asset development! Why? May be your first question. And it’s a good one. If you are one of the 10 million Americans who receive Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and/or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and/or another public benefit, you have likely been taught not to earn, save and invest for fear that you will lose your cash or (even worse) health benefits.
However, the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) , mandates that Americans with disabilities have the same opportunities and access in the workplace, government programs, public accommodations, transportation, and telecommunications that other citizens enjoy. The language of the ADA includes, “assure their [citizens with disabilities] full participation, independent living and economic self-sufficiency.” The ADA supports your right to economic self-sufficiency.
We encourage you to think beyond work. Work is a means NOT an end.
Join us to learn how you can raise your expectations by earning, saving and investing towards your personal “American Dream” and how you can do it while keeping some or all of your needed public benefits.
