Financial Capability of Adults with Disabilities. Findings from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation 2012 National Financial Capability Study
Using information from the FINRA Investor Education Foundation 2012 National Financial Capability Study, we examined financial capability among people with and without disabilities. Respondents noted as having disabilities throughout this report selected “permanently sick, disabled, or unable to work” in response to the study’s question on current work status. Given the unique economic situation of people with disabilities, it is not surprising that an analysis of the data from the National Financial Capability Study (NFCS) reveals that people with disabilities have less overall financial capability compared to other Americans.
