The Oregon program is unique because it was created with the support of people with disabilities and those working with the disability community. The program collaborates with nonprofit organizations and government agencies that focus on disability issues and champion their cause. The Oregon program established ways for people to get in-person assistance with in-state partners such as the Aging and Disability Resource Centers in case they need additional support. The support team goes above and beyond with intensive training to help empower beneficiaries with information provided in a way that is most useful for that person. The Oregon ABLE debit card was designed with accessibility in mind, having special features to improve ease of use for individuals with disabilities and allows beneficiaries a simple, efficient way to use up to $15,000 at a time for Qualified Disability Expenses. Oregon is also the first ABLE program to partner with Sumday, a program manager that offers a fun, simple and intuitive online platform that helps people manage their ABLE accounts to reach their dreams.

Everything Oregon ABLE does is focused on empowering people with disabilities to live the lives they desire, whatever that may look like. They always talk directly to the person with a disability, not about them to their support team. This even comes through by designing features and options that will meet everyone’s needs and giving account owners the freedom to choose what works best for them.

There is a 10 day hold before deposits made by the account owner or authorized legal representative are available. There is a 20 day hold if the deposits were made by someone else.

Idaho Statute §56-708

The State Independent Living Council (SILC) provides technical assistance, information and financial literacy training. Technical assistance includes information and assistance relating to the ABLE Act, setting up ABLE accounts in other states and providing information related to financial literacy. The SILC can be reached at (208)-334-3800.

The passage of House Bill 41, signed by Governor Butch Otter on March 20, 2017, provides information for disregarding ABLE accounts when determining an Idaho resident’s eligibility for a state or local assistance program or a needs-based state or local grant, so long as the ABLE account and the activity related to it are disregarded when determining an applicant’s eligibility for a Federal assistance program. This legislation also establishes, subject to appropriation, a function to provide individuals with disabilities, and those assisting them, technical assistance relating to the ABLE Act.

The Oregon program is unique because it was created with the support of people with disabilities and those working with the disability community. The program collaborates with nonprofit organizations and government agencies that focus on disability issues and champion their cause. The Oregon program established ways for people to get in-person assistance with in-state partners such as the Aging and Disability Resource Centers in case they need additional support. The support team goes above and beyond with intensive training to help empower beneficiaries with information provided in a way that is most useful for that person. The Oregon ABLE debit card was designed with accessibility in mind, having special features to improve ease of use for individuals with disabilities and allows beneficiaries a simple, efficient way to use up to $15,000 at a time for Qualified Disability Expenses. Oregon is also the first ABLE program to partner with Sumday, a program manager that offers a fun, simple and intuitive online platform that helps people manage their ABLE accounts to reach their dreams.

Everything Oregon ABLE does is focused on empowering people with disabilities to live the lives they desire, whatever that may look like. They always talk directly to the person with a disability, not about them to their support team. This even comes through by designing features and options that will meet everyone’s needs and giving account owners the freedom to choose what works best for them.
