Project Description

The next step: Retirement planning for older adults with developmental disabilities (PDF- 28.3 KB)

This project sought to build links between the disability and aging sectors to respond to a growing need for information to inform policy and programs relevant to retirement planning for persons with developmental disabilities. Service providers, educators and policy makers have recognized an imperative need to address the gaps in retirement planning for this population. Building links between the sectors is a primary step to creating inclusive social policy that will support healthy aging and community participation.
