Topic: Enable Savings Plan: Nebraska's ABLE Program

When: 7 July 2016, 6:00pm

Where: CHI Health Service Center, 7261 Mercy Rd., Omaha NE

In December 2014, the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act was signed into law authorizing eligible individuals with disabilities the opportunity to open tax-exempt ABLE accounts to save for disability related expenses without impacting eligibility for asset-depended public benefits like Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Medicaid. Enable Savings Plan, Nebraska's ABLE program, is launching June 30, 2016.
In this month's presentation, Joanna Swanson, Head of Direct Sales, will discuss Enable's features and benefits including: Impact on public benefits, Eligibility for Enable, Qualified expenses, Contributions and Withdrawals, How to enroll, and Next steps

Reminder: When inclement weather forces local public schools to close in the city or town that a NAMI meeting is held, NAMI Omaha meetings will also be cancelled.
