Why Money Management is Important
Money management is especially important for individuals with disabilities to feel independent and it enables them to make informed decisions about their financial future. It can help them to create a budget and plan for retirement, as well as manage their existing assets. Money management helps to ensure that individuals with disabilities have enough money to cover their basic needs, such as food, shelter, and medical care. It can also help them to make the most of their limited resources, allowing them to save for unexpected expenses, plan for future needs, and make wise investments. Money management is a valuable tool, as it can be used to help ensure financial security and peace of mind.
