Welcome to #ABLEtoSave Month: An Orientation on What You Need to Know About ABLE

August 1, 2019 – 2:00 – 3:00 pm ET

The ABLE National Resource Center is excited to launch our annual, nationwide #ABLEtoSave Awareness Campaign Webinar Series that will run throughout the month of August 2019. The series provides information about Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts. Weekly webinars will be held each Thursday in August from 2:00- 3:00 p.m. ET and will include information for people with disabilities, family members and those who support them. Each webinar will feature the stories of ABLE account owners and/or family members and how an ABLE account enhances the health, independence and quality of life for people with disabilities.

The webinar on August 1 was an orientation and an introduction to ABLE accounts and #ABLEtoSave month. To kick off the #ABLEtoSave campaign, attendees heard the stories of several ABLE account owners and their ABLE goals and the wide variety of ways in which an ABLE account can be used.
