A Primer on ABLE Accounts

The ABLE Act builds on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), recognizing the extra, significant costs that come with living with a disability.

Presenters will share:

·        How an ABLE account can increase financial independence

·        ABLE account basics and the interaction with SSI and Medicaid

·        Resources and tools

Presenters:

·        Miranda Kennedy, Director, ABLE National Resource Center

·        Marlene Ulisky, Disability Benefits Expert, ABLE National Resource Center

·        Pshon Barrett, Esquire, ADA Group, LLC, Attorneys for Disabled Americans and ABLE account owner and 2020 ABLE NRC Ambassador
