One out of every five people in the U.S. (approximately 65 million people) live with a disability1, while one out of every six workers assist with caregiving.2 Even so, people with disabilities and their caregivers are often overlooked.
Our central mission is to help all Americans retire better — one person, one family, one institution at a time. And providing solutions and services to the special needs community and their caregivers is a natural extension of our goal. In the process of doing so, we're looking to help financial advisors and organizations make a difference in the lives of millions living with special needs and disabilities as well as their caregivers.
