The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) recently created a financial toolkit called Secure Your Financial Future: A Toolkit for Individuals with Disabilities to help people with disabilities make better informed economic decisions throughout their careers. To gather feedback and suggestions on the best ways to improve the toolkit, DOL invites you to join a national online dialogue, “Advancing Financial Equity for Individuals with Disabilities,” now through November 8. This virtual conversation will inform future content enhancements to the Financial Toolkit and help DOL create equitable opportunities for employment and financial empowerment for people with disabilities, specifically those from underserved communities. All ideas are welcome, but we are specifically looking for input to identify: New information and resources to include in the toolkit; Ways to address underserved and marginalized populations; and Employment-related financial questions and related resources. Visit the online dialogue now through November 8 to submit your ideas and comment and vote on ideas submitted by others.
