Modeled after college savings accounts, the ABLE Act Amends Section 529 of the Internal Revenue Service Code of 1986 to create tax-advantaged savings accounts for individuals with disabilities. These tax-advantaged savings accounts can be used to cover qualified disability expenses such as, but not limited to: Education, and housing and transportation. ABLE accounts allow individuals, with qualifying disabilities, and their families to save for a wide range of disability-related expenses.
