Get Ready for an Exciting Summer with Penny Forward at the 2024 Blindness Conventions!

A Message from Penny Forward Founder and CEO, Chris Peterson

Hey there, friends!

I’m super excited because, in a little over two weeks, Penny Forward volunteers and I will be heading to the National Federation of the Blind (NFB) and American Council of the Blind (ACB) national conventions. This year marks a special milestone for us as we will not only be exhibiting but also holding workshops at both conventions for the first time! If you’re planning to attend one of these conventions, please stop by and say hi! We’d love to meet you in person and chat about all the fantastic work Penny Forward is doing to provide accessible and affordable financial literacy education to the blind community.

Unveiling Our New “Employment Essentials” Online Course

One of the highlights of this convention season is the launch of our brand-new “Employment Essentials” online course. Join us on Thursday, June 20th, for an exclusive unveiling where we’ll share details about the course and announce some exciting convention specials. Plus, you can enter to win fabulous prizes! Trust me, you won’t want to miss this.

Workshop Highlight: Unlock the Power of Financial Freedom

At both conventions, we’re offering a special workshop titled Unlock the Power of Financial Freedom with Penny Forward. This session is a must-attend for anyone eager to master the art of financial management, especially while navigating government benefits and employment challenges. Here’s a sneak peek of what we’ll cover:

  • Impact of Income and Expenses on Benefits: Learn how your income and expenses affect your Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits.
  • Importance of Financial Records: Discover the critical importance of keeping meticulous financial records. This simple practice can be your best defense against Social Security overpayments, saving you from unnecessary stress and financial setbacks.
  • ABLE Accounts: Explore the benefits of ABLE accounts, which allow you to save up to $100,000 without jeopardizing your SSI benefits. We’ll guide you through setting up and managing an ABLE account to maximize your savings and maintain your benefits.
  • Penny Forward Resources: Find out how Penny Forward can be your partner in navigating these financial pathways. With our self-paced online courses, group workshops, and one-on-one financial counseling, you’ll gain not only knowledge but also practical solutions to apply immediately to your financial life.
