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'll 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; and
• Practical next steps and resources for help.
• Kelly Darr, Legal Director at Disability Rights Pennsylvania
• David Gates, Senior Attorney, Pennsylvania Health Law Project
• Nancy Murray, Senior Vice President of Achieva and President, The Arc of Greater Pittsburgh
The program is part of Money Talks, a free webinar series on financial empowerment for people with disabilities hosted by Pennsylvania Assistive Technology Foundation (PATF). Learn more at patf.us/MoneyTalks.
