What is an ABLE Account?
The purpose of an ABLE Account is to encourage and assist individuals with disabilities and their families to save funds to maintain health, increase independence, and improve quality of life. ABLE stands for “Achieving a Better Life Experience.” An ABLE Account will allow individuals with qualified disabilities and their families across Wisconsin to put away their own funding for specified items, such as housing, transportation, employment training and support, assistive technology, personal support services, health care expenses and other needs while not jeopardizing the person’s eligibility for Medicaid and other programs that provide essential supports that are not otherwise available. Wisconsin’s ABLE Act provision recognizes the extra and significant costs of living with a disability and will support people to increase their independence.
