An Illinois ABLE account means greater independence for people with disabilities. How?
- You own your ABLE account. You – the individual with the disability – are always the owner and the beneficiary of your ABLE account.
- 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.
- 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 www.IL.SaveWithABLE.com.
