Are you a Floridian with disabilities? Or someone who loves a Floridian with disabilities?
Then you need to know about ABLE United!
For individuals with disabilities, the fear of losing benefits or costs of setting up special needs trusts often prevented or limited them from considering all of their options to build financial security. The ABLE Act amends section 529 of the Internal Revenue Service Code allowing each state to create tax-advantaged savings accounts specifically for individuals with disabilities. These savings and investment accounts allow individuals to save money while maintaining federal benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid. The ABLE Act now allows individuals with disabilities to save up to $14,000 without impacting government benefits.

My daughter deals with several mental health conditions including anxiety disorder, depression and PTSD. She has works hard not to let this define her and has come a long way with determination and the help of medications, therapy, finding coping skills, setting up support systems and more. However, even with all of that, her conditions still make it difficult to function, sometimes for stretches of months at a time.
ABLE United allows individuals and/or their loved ones to set up financial security for those hard times. My daughter meets all three of the qualifications. 1. She lives in Florida. 2. She “has a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that results in marked and severe functional limitations and that: (i) can be expected to result in death; or (ii) has lasted, or can be expected to last, for a continuous period of not less than 12 months.” 3. She was diagnosed before age 26.
I’m entering the sweepstakes today and encourage you to do the same!
