Fact Sheet: Protect Savings for People with Disabilities

Resource Overview

The ABLE (Achieving a Better Life Experience) program eases the financial strains faced by individuals with disabilities by allowing them to open tax-free savings accounts that will not affect their eligibility for SSI (up to $100,000), Medicaid, and other public benefits.

SB1246 ensures that ABLE accounts are protected from debt collection, safeguarding the financial security of Illinoisans with disabilities.
