Saving Money, Keeping Benefits
Mar 01, 2015 11:49AM ● Published by Wendy Sipple
Last December, President Obama signed into law the Achieving a Better Life Experience Act, aka the ABLE Act. This ground-breaking but somewhat limited new law allows people who have a disability that occurred before the age of 26 to open a tax-free savings account to pay for education, housing, transportation, training, health, personal support services, etc. Families may deposit as much as $14,000 annually; beneficiaries can save up to $100,000 before impacting their SSI benefits; Medicaid eligibility will continue no matter how much money is saved. These accounts will be available later this year.
