The ABLE Act created a new type of savings account for people with disabilities. Similar to a 529 account for college savings, ABLE Accounts allow individuals with disabilities and their families to save money for a range of future uses, without jeopardizing continued benefits and services because these funds are exempted from asset limit eligibility tests.
The PA Treasury Department has been working with advocates across the state to raise awareness about the ABLE Accounts.
On Sept 28 there will be a public event in Pittsburgh to share more information about ABLE Accounts and to answer questions.
