ABLE Account Decision Guide Series
ABLE Accounts and Working People with Disabilities
Medicaid and ABLE Accounts for the Working Person
This section looks at three common pathways to Medicaid eligibility for people with disabilities, with a focus on working people.
→Yes, Medicaid eligibility continues so long as the person qualifies for any amount of SSI payment. In fact, as wages increase and SSI payments are gradually reduced, the amount of extra monthly income will likewise increase in many cases, creating more money for meeting expenses related to work, a work goal and/or to contribute to an ABLE account.
→No, the discussion in this section will not be relevant to the person.
Note: Our ABLE Decision Guide Series is designed as an aid to decision making as it relates to establishing and using an ABLE account. This document does not cover every possible issue related to the topic and is not a substitute to more in-depth analysis that may be required in some cases.
