ABLE 529A: A New Option for Disabled Americans

OnDemand Webinar (58 minutes)

Understand regulations and requirements of being an ABLE provider as well as eligibility requirements for your clients.This topic will provide an overview of the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) statute found in Section 529A of the Internal Revenue Code by analyzing how and when ABLE accounts are used. The ABLE Act of 2014 paved the way for millions of disabled Americans to open tax-free accounts to help them save for their disability expenses. But the Act and the implementing regulations impose a number of requirements and limitations upon both providers and participants in connection with opening and maintaining an ABLE account. A comparison of ABLE accounts with other traditional alternatives will be particularly useful to practitioners.
