Recent research shows that the primary concern people have when they think about experiencing advanced illness is burdening their families with inordinate expense. What to Know: Financial Needs and Preparedness for Those Facing Advanced Illness will provide a top-level overview of the maze of decisions people with advanced illness and their families navigate, where the gaps in support exist and recommended steps and resources that can help alleviate financial burden.
The webinar will also highlight the critical role SSA plays in financial preparedness and support for so many in the advanced illness population, in addition to the many other resources available for patients and families to achieve financial security for those with advanced illness. This webinar is a part of C-TAC’s partnership with SSA centered around the 80th Anniversary of the adoption of the Social Security Act and its continued assistance to the nations sickest and most vulnerable.
