The ABLE National Resource Center and ACCSES are joined by the U.S. AbilityOne Commission in presenting the two-part “Ready and ABLE to Work and Save” online event in honor of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). This series is designed to increase employers’ and service providers’ understanding of the important role that ABLE accounts can play in supporting the employment and financial stability of working-age people with disabilities and their families. We will provide key updates on ABLE and share strategies and tools for employers and service providers to use moving forward.

In Part One, employers and service providers will get an overview and refresher on ABLE accounts with key employment-related updates, strategies and tools. Join us to hear from our featured guests and panelists as we zero in on how ABLE accounts can support a more robust workforce that includes working-age people with disabilities saving and investing in an ABLE account.

In Part Two of this series, we are offering a “Technical Assistance Office Hour” on ABLE and Employment. This is an opportunity for employers and service providers who participated in Part 1 of this series to ask questions of our featured guests, panelists, ABLE subject matter experts and work incentives coordinators.

Panelists include ABLE Account Owners and featured guests:

  • Miranda Kennedy, M.P.P., Director of ABLE National Resource Center, National Disability Institute
  • Kate McSweeny, President & CEO, ACCSES – The Voice of Disability Service Providers
