As the end of 2018 draws near…
we’re taking time to reflect on all that we’ve accomplished together this year. Florida was one of the first states in the nation to launch a qualified ABLE program, and in a little more than two years, 2,700 Floridians with disabilities have opened an ABLE United account and have contributed more than $13.5 million to their accounts.
“With nearly 13 percent of the state population reporting a disability, we have devoted our time to understanding what Floridians are looking for in ABLE United,” said John Finch, ABLE United Director. “And the best part is – we’re just getting started.”
It is our mission to help people like you and your loved ones save money to cover costs that support health, independence, and quality of life without negatively impacting federal benefits like Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid.
“We’re pleased to see that ABLE United is allowing Floridians with disabilities to save like never before,” said Kevin Thompson, Executive Director of ABLE United. “For years, individuals receiving federal benefits were dramatically limited in the amount of money they could save, but now, they have an opportunity to truly invest in their financial future.”
This holiday season, we’re grateful to those of you who have taken the first step in securing a brighter future. And from all of us at ABLE United, we wish you a very happy holidays and a wonderful New Year full of opportunities to make your dreams come true.
