There is a lot to be said for putting your spare change to work for you – and the truth is, you have to start somewhere. As children, one of the most commonly known places to save was through a piggy bank.
Today, saving comes in many forms, and for the disability community, an ABLE United account is one of them.
When ABLE accounts became a reality, it expanded the opportunities by offering individuals a smarter, safer way to save tax-free while maintaining the important benefits they rely on. It also offers unique benefits like saving with the help of family and friends through a gifting page, as well as custom investment options that allow your money to make money for you.
America Saves reports that those with a savings plan are twice as likely to save successfully – even more so when a short-term goal is set, like committing to save $20 a week (or a month) for six months versus setting a goal to save $500 a month for a year.
Now, more than ever, future planning is critical especially when it comes to planning for the “unexpected”.
So, in an effort to encourage saving, we are launching the Save in September Campaign. Now until September 30, when you complete enrollment online and contribute at least $25, you will receive a FREE $50 contribution into your new ABLE account (a “digital” piggy bank that works harder for you).
We are also running a special Facebook giveaway where all you have to do is share what you’re saving for with ABLE United to be entered to win. Three winners will take home a brand new 10.2-inch iPad. To review the Promotion Guidelines, please click here.
Whether you’re a current account holder, or considering trying out an account, we hope you’ll join us and make saving with ABLE United for you or your loved one part of your daily, weekly, or monthly routine.
