For the past 5 years, ABLE accounts have helped people with disabilities across the country save money without jeopardizing access to Medicaid home and community-based services and other federal supports they need to live in their communities. Unfortunately, millions of people with disabilities aren’t eligible for ABLE accounts because they acquired their disability after age 25.
The Arc and many other disability organizations strongly support a bill to fix the ABLE program, the ABLE Age Adjustment Act (S. 651 /H.R. 1814), and ensure 6 million more people with disabilities will be eligible for ABLE accounts. Click here to learn more about the ABLE Age Adjustment Act.
