ABLE Accounts help people with disabilities save funds specifically for disability-related expenses without those savings being counted against Medicaid’s income requirements. To support this important program, see below for an opportunity for national, state and local organizations to sign onto a letter asking Congress to pass the ABLE Age Adjustment Act, which ANCOR supports. Additionally, to further understanding of how these accounts can be used, the ABLE National Resource Center partnered with the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to offer a webinar on leveraging this tool.
“Thursday, February 13, 2020 – 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. ET
The Stephen Beck Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act, or ABLE, was passed by Congress in 2014.
