#ABLEtoSave Series: Basic Overview of ABLE (Sponsored by Fidelity Investments)

August 8, 2018

August 2018 was #ABLEtoSave month, a nationwide awareness campaign led by the ABLE National Resource Center (ABLE NRC) to provide information about Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts, which are a new financial savings tool for individuals with disabilities. 

ABLE accounts are now available across the country for qualified individuals with disabilities to save money without jeopardizing their eligibility for public benefits. Despite their widespread availability, lack of awareness and misinformation about ABLE accounts is preventing millions of people from taking advantage of this revolutionary savings tool. This webinar seeks to help people with disabilities, their families, and other ABLE-related stakeholders to increase knowledge of and confidence in using ABLE accounts.

The webinar takes a quick look at:

  • Eligibility
  • Interaction with public benefits
  • Appropriate use of ABLE fund
  • Comparison to 529 College Savings Account
  • Residency Requirements
  • Caps related to contributions
  • Much more!
