How do I know if I’m an Authorized Legal Representative (ALR)?

An Authorized Legal Representative (“ALR”) is someone who is legally authorized under state and federal law to make decisions for the Beneficiary. An ALR is a Custodian for the Beneficiary, such as a Parent, legal guardian or a person authorized under a power of attorney. The ALR may neither have, nor acquire, any beneficial interest in the ABLE United Account during the Beneficiary’s lifetime and must administer the ABLE United Account for the benefit of the Beneficiary.

If you don’t currently have power of attorney for a Beneficiary, you can find more information here.
