NY ABLE Spotlight

The NY ABLE Program is a tax-advantaged savings program for individuals with disabilities and their families to save for their current or long-term needs while maintaining their ability to benefit from federal benefits programs such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) and Medicaid.
