The ABLE National Resource Center (ANRC) las launched a month-long #ABLEtoSave grassroots campaign throughout the month of August. The purpose of the campaign is to educate and inform the general public about Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts. The goals of the #ABLEtoSave campaign are to increase awareness about ABLE accounts and to increase the amount of ABLE accounts opened across the country.
ABLE accounts are tax-advantaged savings accounts that have the potential to significantly increase the independence and quality of life of individuals with disabilities without jeopardizing benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
During each of the five weeks in August, ANRC will provide a detailed calendar of messaging, social media posts and other resources to all campaign participants. Informational and marketing videos have also been developed, and webinars on ABLE-related topics will be held on Wednesday of each week.
Currently, 23 states have ABLE account programs. To learn more about the #ABLEtoSave campaign and ABLE accounts, visit the ABLE National Resource Center website.
