Sponsored By:

ADA Live! (WADA) Show
from the Southeast ADA Center, National Disability Institute, and the ADA National Network

Description:

Adults with disabilities are twice as likely to live in poverty as those who do not have a disability. ABLE accounts are a way for individuals with disabilities and their families to build wealth without jeopardizing means or resource tested benefits. Created by the passage of the Stephen Beck Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act of 2014 (ABLE Act), ABLE accounts allow individuals with disabilities and their families to save money and continue eligibility for SSI and Medicaid.

This episode of ADA Live! will discuss the opportunities ABLE accounts provide in breaking the cycle of poverty.

Our guest speaker will be: Michael Morris - Director of the Burton Blatt Institute (BBI) at Syracuse University, and founder and Executive Director of the National Disability Institute (NDI).
