Description: Find out how Ohio’s STABLE Account can increase the financial independence of people with disabilities by providing a tool to save, invest, and spend personal funds without affecting eligibility for federal or state means-tested benefits programs like SSI or Medicaid. Attendees will gain a full understanding of ABLE Accounts in the life of a person with a disability. Those in attendance will benefit from understanding enrollment, managing an account, spending options, and hearing real examples of success stories through encouraged audience interaction. Basic information, practical application, and technical expertise will be shared by STABLE Account staff, the administrators of the nation’s most-used ABLE Program.
