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.
