Senators Push To Expand Access To ABLE Savings Accounts

ABLE accounts are tax free savings vehicle for those with disabilities. Currently, people with a disability with an onset date before their 26th birthday can open ABLE accounts. The ABLE Age Adjustment Act would raise the age limit to 46, allowing more Americans to save while not risking the loss of their federal benefits.

A bipartisan group of senators wants to raise the eligibility age for special accounts that allow Americans with disabilities to save money without jeopardizing government benefits.

Today is my cousin Lori Humphrey's 55th birthday. I don't know where she lives or I would call her or go to see her. If someone could get a Happy Birthday message to her that would be great! She can call me if she would like to! Thank you.
