ABLE United is to encourage and assist the saving of private funds to help people with disabilities cover costs that support their health, independence, and quality of life. Simply put, to help save for a better life experience. Now, individuals with disabilities can: • Save tax-free for future qualified expenses • Save while maintaining federal benefits • Save on fees – ABLE United offers the best value for Florida residents ABLE United accounts provides an economical way to save up to $14,000 per year for future qualified disability expenses. For individuals who are employed, ABLE United can help grow assets with tax-free earnings. Those who are unable to work have the ability to save money without fear of losing benefits. An ABLE United account provides an opportunity for financial independence for individuals with disabilities, and also allows caregivers and family members to contribute and help financially prepare for their loved one’s future.
Who may open an ABLE United account?
There are three eligibility criteria for opening an ABLE United account:
- Florida Residency- The individual must be a Florida resident at the time of application.
- Disability Severity Criteria- The individual must be blind or have a disability that meets the disability and severity requirements for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI).
- Disability Onset- The onset of blindness or disability must have occurred before the individual’s 26th birthday. Current age is not considered when opening an ABLE United account – except that the account must be opened by an adult 18 years of age or older.
We have opened an ABLE United account for our daughter who is about to turn 7. I have to say, it’s been a lifesaver knowing we can save money, without the worry of her insurance being taken away due to having too much in savings. Now we can save up for that trip she wants to go on or that car she may want when she is older. Or even put it away for furthering her education or costs of care later on. This account has really been a light at the end of what we thought to be a never ending dark tunnel.
