ABLE To Work Act Contribution: An Account Owner who is employed and who is not contributing to a defined contribution plan, an annuity contract or an eligible deferred compensation plan may contribute additional money to his or her Account. The additional amount that may be contributed is an amount equal to the Account Owner’s compensation for the year or equal to the poverty line for a one-person household for the prior calendar year, whichever amount is the less: up to $12,760 for Oregon residents.

Medicaid Estate Recovery Status: In the event of the death of a beneficiary, the funds from their ABLE account can be used by his or her estate to repay any outstanding eligible expenses or funeral and burial costs. Remaining funds will be transferred to the estate of the beneficiary.  Due to the passage of Senate Bill 1027 during the 2017 legislative session, Medicaid in Oregon is restricted from filing a claim for a payback on funds that were previously in an ABLE account of a deceased beneficiary. Medicaid Payback is governed at the federal level and, out of an abundance of caution, it is suggested to assume funds could still be recovered by Medicaid.
State Income Tax Deduction: Yes. Anyone paying Oregon income tax who contributes to an Oregon ABLE Savings Plan can receive up to a $300 tax credit. It is a progressive income tax credit, meaning it has more of an impact for low- to moderate-income savers.

FDIC Insured: Yes. The Cash Option is federally insured by the FDIC up to $250,000.
