[BRIEFING] The ABLE Act: A Progress Report

  • 325 Russell Senate Office Building (map)

The Stephen Beck Jr., Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act has undergone nearly three years of implementation. During this time, a tremendous amount of work has been done on the local, state and federal levels to ensure that eligible individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to build a more sound financial future, without jeopardizing their eligibility for various supports and services provided by means-tested programs.

This briefing is hosted by the ABLE National Resource Center (ANRC), and sponsored by Senator Robert “Bob” Casey, Representative Pete Sessions and Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers in collaboration with the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Financial Security Taskforce and National Association of State Treasurers (NAST).

The purpose of the briefing is to provide legislative members and staff, the disability community, state ABLE program administrators and the financial institutions involved in the ABLE space, with a progress report that will highlight successes, examine implementation challenges and look into the future with respect to legislative recommendations to strengthen ABLE.
