Enable Alabama: The ABLE Account Plan for Alabama Citizens

The Enable Alabama Savings Plan is Alabama’s new ABLE Act account program. The ABLE Act allows individuals with disabilities to save funds for their future in an income tax-free account that does not count as part of the $2,000 resource limit. Enable Alabama helps individuals with disabilities save up to an additional $14,000 per year to pay for qualified disability expenses without affecting their “means-tested” benefits, such as SSI and Medicaid. Come learn about this new opportunity.
