Improving Employment Outcomes: The Critical Role of Financial Education

Monday, April 29, 2024
3:00 pm – 4:00 pm, Eastern Time

Register for the Zoom webinar

Host: LEAD Center

During this presentation, the National Association of Workforce Development Professionals (NAWDP) will share findings from a recent study on the financial service needs of the workforce system. Workforce professionals will explain how they support jobseekers with disabilities through financial education. Webinar participants will also learn how the Secure Your Financial Future: A Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities provides jobseekers and workforce professionals with resources, tools and financial engagement approaches. Finally, an individual with a disability will describe how they benefitted from employment and financial education services within the workforce system, which resulted in a successful transition off public benefits.

During this webinar, participants will learn how:

  • Financial education is a critical component of service delivery in the workforce system.
  • The Financial Toolkit is a valuable resource to workforce professionals serving jobseekers, including people with disabilities.
  • Workforce systems providing financial education services are supporting jobseekers receiving social security disability and other public benefits to achieve economic self-sufficiency.
