What happens after the death of a Beneficiary?

In the event of the death of a Beneficiary, the funds from their ABLE United Account can be used by his or her estate to repay any outstanding Qualified Disability Expenses, including funeral and burial costs. If a Beneficiary has passed away and the personal representative of his or her estate is not the Authorized Legal Representative, the executor may submit a death certificate and a Certification that they are the personal representative and responsible for the proper disposition for the Account balance. The personal representative may complete a Death of Beneficiary Form in order to have the remaining balance sent to the Beneficiary’s estate.
