The ABLE National Resource Center (ABLE NRC) is a collaborative whose supporters share the goal of accelerating the design and availability of ABLE accounts for the benefit of individuals with disabilities and their families. We bring together the investment, support and resources of the country’s largest and most influential national disability organizations.
Program Description
  • ABLE savings up to $100,000 does not impact SSI eligibility.
  • Any amount of ABLE savings does not change eligibility for FAFSA, HUD/Section 8, SNAP, Medicare or any type of Medicaid. 
  • Fliers and webinars are available to inform people who have had a disability that began prior to age 26, of the availability of ABLE accounts.
  • Family, friends, the ABLE account owner, Special Needs and Pooled Trusts can contribute money directly into an ABLE account.
  • Investment earnings grow tax free and are not considered countable income. 
The website also has a tool to help people compare and select an ABLE savings/investment account. 

NOTE:  If families would like to start saving in the Enable Savings Plan and do not have a plan in their state, they can set up an account in another state for the long term or until an ABLE account is available in their state in which case the funds can be rolled over to your preferred ABLE plan. At this time, there are more than 40 plans available to choose from.
