Keynote Speaker: State Representative Lisa Heddens
The Stephen Beck, Jr., Achieving a Better Life Experience Act1 (ABLE) Act was signed into law on December 19, 2014 after many years of advocacy and bipartisan work in both the House and Senate. The law allows eligible individuals with disabilities the ability to establish “ABLE accounts” for qualified beneficiaries that resemble the qualified tuition programs, often called “529 accounts”, that have been established under that section of the tax code since 1996. The new ABLE accounts will allow more individual choice and control over spending on qualified disability expenses and limited investment decisions, while protecting eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Income, and other important federal benefits for people with disabilities. Without these accounts, many people with disabilities have very limited avenues to save and allow for further independence.
Join us to learn more about these accounts, ask questions, and network with other Iowans. Accounts will be available early 2017.
Lunch will be served FREE of charge.
Proudly hosted by the Iowa Able Foundation, FDIC, Able National Resource Center,
Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, and the State Treasurer’s office of Iowa
