ABLE Account Strategies


Living with a disablility is often associated with significant amounts of extra costs.  Individuals and families can own and contribute to ABLE Accounts.  These accounts are tax-advantaged and can help fund qualified expenses for the person with a disability.

 

 

 

The ABLE Act allows contributions by participating individuals, including family and friends for a single tax year in the amount of $15,000 (2020).  An employed ABLE account owner who does not participate in an employer sponsored retirement account can make an additional contribution up to the lesser of : (1) the ABLE account owner's compensation for that tax year, or (2) the poverty line amount of $12,490 (2020).  Funds contributed to an ABLE Account grow tax deferred, and can be used tax-free for qualified disability expenses.  For a list of these qualified expenses, please visit the National ABLE Resource Center by clicking on the icon below:
