This presentation will provide an overview of the Illinois ABLE savings program. It will highlight eligibility criteria as well as how it’s different from special needs trusts. Until ABLE, people with disabilities remained trapped in a perpetual state of poverty in order to maintain their federal means-tested benefits.
