4 TACE Center: Region IV, a project of the Burton Blatt Institute. Funded by RSA Grant # H264A © 2013 Should poverty issues matter to vocational rehabilitation? It is our job to assist clients in obtaining or maintaining employment. Once clients are employed it is their job to manage their resources and money. NO Everyone knows poverty is an independent living issue not a rehabilitation issue. YES Poor credit scores, misinformation about benefits and work, low expectations and an overriding belief that one should not earn above SGA causes many people not to be employed, or to be among the working poor. Select the best answer

5 TACE Center: Region IV, a project of the Burton Blatt Institute. Funded by RSA Grant # H264A © 2013 Incorrect … A vocational rehabilitation counselor assists clients in considering all the factors that need to be addressed in implementing a successful individual plan for employment. The vocational goal needs to place a person on a pathway to financial stability if employment is to be maintained.

6 TACE Center: Region IV, a project of the Burton Blatt Institute. Funded by RSA Grant # H264A © 2013 Incorrect… The following factors have been shown to impact employment: Poor credit scores Not understanding the impact of work on benefits Not having a checking or savings account (being “unbanked”) Using predatory payday loan organizations If clients are going to thrive not just survive, they need to be on a pathway to financial stability. So talking about money is part of counseling and guidance.
