ABLE Accounts: Top Three Questions: January/February

 From AchievABLE, newsletter from the ABLE National Resource Center 2.2021

This month, we answer the following questions:

  1. If I receive economic relief payments, can I save this money in my ABLE account?
  2. Will I receive any ABLE-related tax forms from my program?
  3. In most months, my income is higher than my expenses and, even though I would love to save money in an ABLE account, I rarely have extra income to save. I thought people who received SSI and/or SSDI were not allowed to work so are there any strategies for finding income to save in an ABLE account?

Find out the answers to these questions.
