Whats Your Story

October is National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Employment Awareness poster

To reflect the important role disability plays in workforce diversity, the theme of 2016’s official National Disability Employment Awareness Month that we are celebrating this month is “#InclusionWorks.” This theme was created with input from a wide variety of national organizations and people with disabilities with the hope that the hashtag theme spurs both individuals and groups to post images and stimulate discussion on social media about the many ways “inclusion works.” Share your stories “#InclusionWorks.

Listen to William and Christian share the importance of celebrating the talents of people with disabilities in the workplace.

Enrollment is now open for STABLE Accounts -- the nation's first savings plan for people with disabilities.  With the creation of a STABLE Account, eligible participants are able to save money, invest money and spend money on qualified expenses such as healthcare, education, housing and transportation – all without affecting participants’ eligibility for benefits programs such as Medicaid and SSI.
