The Arc of Northern Virginia recognizes that now more than ever, all families must engage in financial planning when their children are young. That is why beginning in late March, The Arc of Northern Virginia is offering, Take Control: Building Financial Security a FREE six-part financial education series.

  • Understand credit and debt;
  • Navigate the disability benefits system in our state;
  • Use Special Needs Trusts (SNTs) and ABLE accounts to build assets while maintaining benefit eligibility; and,
  • Lay the foundation to secure a better financial future.
