Second Sense - Beyond Vision Loss

Penny Forward: Build Your Financial Future

Wednesday, January 17 - 10:30 am - 11:30 am

Do you struggle with banking, managing financial records, budgeting and any of the numerous components of your financial life? Not only is the landscape of personal finance information overwhelming and complicated, but adding vision loss and accessibility to the picture may make you want to put your head in the sand. This strategy, however, isn’t going to help you reach the goals you dream of!

To help you better understand how to reach your financial goals, we have invited Chris Peterson, president and CEO of Penny Forward, to join us for an informative and empowering conversation on financial literacy. Penny Forward is a nonprofit organization founded and led by people with vision loss. Through education, mentoring and support, they help our community navigate the many complex areas of personal finance.

Chris will share:

  • practical strategies and tools to master independent personal banking
  • ways to obtain your financial records and credit reports in a format accessible to you
  • benefits of using ABLE accounts to save and invest while protecting your government benefits
  • simple and practical tips to maintain crucial financial records
  • other supportive services offered by Penny Forward to enhance your path to financial independence

We hope you will join us for this informative and empowering presentation by Penny Forward. Call the conference line at 312-809-1004. For questions, email Kathy Austin.
