The ABLE Act allows certain individuals with disabilities and their families the opportunity to contribute to a tax-exempt savings account that can be used for maintaining health, independence and quality of life. The bill went into effect on June 9, 2016.
This event is presented in partnership with Washington State's Department of Commerce, the ABLE Advisory Council, Northwest Access Fund and the Financial Empowerment Network.
