Easy Withdrawal

Money in an ABLE United account may be withdrawn at any time and for any reason via electronic transfer (ACH) or check.

Broadly Defined

Qualified Disability Expenses include basic living expenses and are not limited to items for which there is a medical necessity or which solely benefit the individual.

Documentation

No submission required. Retain documentation to justify expenses to the Social Security Administration and the Internal Revenue Service.

Non-Qualified Expenses

Supplemental Security Income: Funds withdrawn and retained to pay non-qualified expenses beyond the month of withdrawal are considered a resource of the individual.

Federal Income Taxes: If withdrawals from the ABLE account for the calendar year exceed the Qualified Disability Expenses, the individual may be subject to income tax plus an additional 10% penalty. Consult a tax professional for additional guidance.
