An Illinois ABLE account means greater independence for people with disabilities.  How?

  1. You own your ABLE account.  You – the individual with the disability – are always the owner and the beneficiary of your ABLE account.
  2. If you are an SSI recipient, you still get your SSI benefits when your ABLE account balance goes over $2,000.  In fact, you can save up to $100,000 before your SSI benefits will be impacted.
  3. It’s your money – the funds in your ABLE account are for your use and you do not have to ask permission or get approval to use the funds for your disability-related expenses.

Now, that’s something to celebrate! For more information about Illinois ABLE, or to enroll, visit
