Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts are designed for those with the occurrence of a disability before the age of 26. The NC ABLE Program was launched in 2017 and allows eligible individuals the opportunity to save and fund a variety of qualified disability expenses while maintaining Medicaid, SSI and other public supports.

NC ABLE accounts can help pay for a variety of expenses, such as:

  • Education
  • Transportation
  • Housing
  • Health and Wellness
  • Financial Management
  • Legal Fees
  • Assistive Technology and more

The NC ABLE presentation covers the eligibility, program features and benefits, including information on who can contribute, contribution limits, types of investments available and the ways to access the account when needed.
