After nearly a decade of grassroots advocacy efforts, there finally exists a savings vehicle to enable people with disabilities to save more than $2,000 in assets without jeopardizing their eligibility for critical government supports. Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts are now widely available. This presentation will explore the rules regarding these accounts such as eligibility, tax treatment and allowable expenditures, and will summarize current ABLE program offerings.
