January 25, 2018

2018 promises to be another exciting year for ABLE.  In addition to the expected launch of several more ABLE programs across the country, there will also be other significant changes to ABLE that have either already taken place as of January 1, 2018, or that will be implemented over the course of this year.

  • Ability to Rollover Funds from a 529 College Savings Account into an ABLE Account

  • Access to the Retirement Savings Contributions Credit (Saver’s Credit)
