Legislative Summary S 6397

If your state has not yet passed ABLE legislation allowing for the development of an ABLE program, we encourage you to contact your state legislator to inform them about the program’s benefits. It is important that your state legislator understands that passing ABLE legislation allows individuals with disabilities in their state to save for their future, a near impossible task prior to this law.
