ABLE Savings Accounts

Email a Friend
Until recently, many in Oregon’s disability community have had to live with a difficult choice: keep a personal bank account in excess of $2000, or enjoy access to government benefits like supplemental security income and Medicare. Michael Parker, Executive Director of Oregon 529 Savings Networks tells us about a new savings plan that allows Oregonians to save for disability expenses without losing state and federal benefits. We also hear from Kaaren Londahl, an adult self-advocate who testified before the legislature on behalf of ABLE, and Alicia DeLashmutt, who opened an ABLE account for her daughter.
