What You Need to Know: ABLE Act Information and Resources

Just before the holidays, President Obama signed into law the Achieving Better Life Expectancy (ABLE) Act. This new Act allows for people with disabilities and their families to set up tax exempt savings accounts which can be used for educational endeavors, health costs, employment related expenses, and other items leading to improved quality of life. One of the things that is so wonderful about these accounts is that they are not bound by the $2,000 resource limit normally placed on beneficiaries of Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Below are some resources to help you learn more about the ABLE Act. If you have additional information you would like to share please add it in the comments.
