Control over your finances involves making many decisions — for example, when you buy a car, choose an apartment, or negotiate a salary. But you don’t have to make those decisions by yourself. In fact, many of us use a network of support, including family, friends, and trusted advisors. In this webinar we will discuss the differences among supported decision-making, representative payee, guardianship, and powers of attorney.
Attendees will learn:
- Different ways people with disabilities can get help in decision-making about health care and money
- How to incorporate supported decision-making
- Ways to self-advocate for the control in decisions you want and need
- Practical next steps and resources for help.
