ANCOR, Other Coalition Members Support Reintroduction of ABLE Act

February 4, 2013

The Collaboration to Promote Self-Determination (CPSD), of which ANCOR is a member, is working diligently to gain support for the ABLE (Achieving a Better Life Experience) Act, which is set to be reintroduced in the House and Senate early next week. The ABLE Act will give individuals with disabilities and their families the ability to save for their child's future, and help people with disabilities live full, productive lives in their communities without losing benefits provided through private insurances, the Medicaid program, the supplemental security income program, the beneficiary’s employment and other sources. The account could fund a variety of essential expenses for individuals, including medical and dental care, education, community based supports, employment training, assistive technology, housing, and transportation.
