ABLE Act in Michigan - Achieving a Better Life Experience Program now available in Michigan

The ABLE Act program is now available in Michigan.  Here are two links that provide information on how to set up an account.  The purpose of the account is to assist individuals with disabilities and their families in saving money to support their future needs related to independent living, health care and other qualified expenses.  The money will "supplement but not supplant" benefits provided by private insurance, SSI and Medicaid.  A person is eligible if they have been diagnosed or become disabled prior to the age of 26 and is either receives SSI/SSDI or has a disability certification. That means that even if the person is under the age of 18 and is not yet receiving SSI, the account can still be set up.

Please check out these links for more information on this opportunity!
