August Proclaimed #ABLEtoSave Month in Alabama

 

Alabama State Treasurer Young Boozer announced the Enable Savings Plan Alabama’s participation in #ABLEtoSave Month, an awareness month proclaimed today by Governor Kay Ivey.

 

The nationwide #ABLEtoSave Month campaign, spearheaded by the ABLE National Resource Center (ANRC), aims to educate individuals with disabilities, their families, financial institutions and the general public about ABLE accounts and the financial independence they provide to the disability community.

 

“It is an honor to join disability organizations and ABLE programs across the country in partnership with the ABLE National Resource Center to promote such a worthy cause,” said Treasurer Boozer. “The ABLE Act has provided new and exciting opportunities for the disability community and we are proud to celebrate the financial independence they have gained as a result.”

 

Enable Alabama will promote #ABLEtoSave Month through its blog and Facebook page, addressing themes such as eligibility, qualified disability expenses, financial literacy, and enrollment.

 

Launched in February, Enable Alabama provides tax-free savings accounts to people with disabilities, allowing them to save without affecting their public benefits like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

 

“In just six months, we have already witnessed firsthand the remarkable ways that Enable Alabama is positively impacting the lives of our account owners,” said Deborah Goodkin, Managing Director, College Savings Plans, First National Bank of Omaha. “This month is a valuable opportunity for us share the resources offered by Enable Alabama and connect with members of our community in spreading the word about the ABLE Act and how it has paved the way for a brighter future for individuals with disabilities.”
