Can I still work and have an ABLE United Account?

Yes. Contributions into an ABLE United Account from wages still count as earned income, but do not count as an asset for federally means-tested programs such as Medicaid. For SSI, the first $100,000 does not count as an asset.

Beneficiaries who work can contribute more than $15,000 per year. To learn more visit ABLE to Work.
