Full Abstract 

This report analyzes data from the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Investor Education Foundation’s National Financial Capability Study (NFCS) to reveal the most comprehensive picture to date of how people with disabilities manage financial resources and make financial decisions. For National Disability Institute, government, community nonprofit organizations and financial institutions, what this report reveals about the financial capability of adults with disabilities provides an important framework for the future design of programs, products, education and services that may improve the financial stability and capability of our nation’s most economically vulnerable population.
