This presentation will cover what ABLE accounts are and the benefits of using one, highlight resources from the national #ABLEtoSave campaign, and walk through the many helpful resources and tools designed with the input of ABLE account owners and their family members available on the ABLE NRC website (ablenrc.org). The Wisconsin Department of Financial Institutions will also provide brief Federal and State legislative updates on ABLE plans.
