Ugift® is an easy-to-use, no-cost way to make a meaningful holiday gift to a loved one with a disability. How does it work?
First, the IL ABLE Account Owner (person with the disability) or the Authorized Individual (an adult who is authorized to transact on the account) logs into their IL ABLE account and accesses their unique Ugift® code.
Next, they share that code with friends, family or others who want to make a contribution to the account.
Then, the gift giver visits UgiftABLE.com and inputs the code in order to make a direct contribution to the IL ABLE Account Owner’s account.
