ABLE and the Student Earned Income Exclusion Work Support for Transition Age Youth  

The Social Security Administration (SSA) encourages students to work. The Student Earned Income Exclusion (SEIE) is a work support that helps Supplemental Security Income (SSI) recipients who work and regularly attend school to keep more of their SSI benefits while continuing their Medicaid eligibility. Saving extra earnings and SSI in an ABLE account can allow students to save for their future goals rather than needing to spend down.
