For me, an ABLE account was the answer for my son...I may not know what our future holds, but I do rest a little easier knowing that financially I can help him even after I am no longer here to physically help him. The ABLE account is a life saver for us.

Beverli Austin Parent of an ABLE Account Owner

ABLE has allowed me to start saving without penalizing or jeopardizing my benefits. Plus, unlike a special needs trust that must be controlled by a trustee or trustees, ABLE gives me – a person with a disability – control over my finances and increased independence.

The first thing to know is that the account is easy to set up. I’m not a financial or a mathematical person. I’m just a mother looking out for her son’s future...The ABLE account is one easy, simple way to get that done. It is one simple thing you can do.
