Event description

Description

The purpose of the briefing is to provide Members of Congress and ABLE related stakeholders with a progress report on ABLE Act implementation nationwide. The briefing will provide an in depth look at what we know to date about account owner demographics, number of accounts open, contribution levels and other significant data points. We will also highlight successes, examine implementation challenges, and look at proposed legislative recommendations to strengthen ABLE.

As a result of the Stephen Beck Jr., Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, more than 30 states have launched ABLE programs. During the nearly three years since its enactment, a tremendous amount of work has been done on the local, state and federal levels to ensure that eligible individuals with disabilities have the opportunity to build a more sound financial future, without jeopardizing their eligibility for various supports and services provided by means-tested programs.

This briefing is hosted by the ABLE National Resource Center (ANRC), sponsored by Senator Robert “Bob” Casey, Senator Richard Burr, Representative Pete Sessions, Representative Cathy McMorris Rodgers and Representative Tony Cárdenas, in collaboration with the Consortium for Citizens with Disabilities (CCD) Financial Security Taskforce and the National Association of State Treasurers (NAST) ABLE Committee.

The briefing is scheduled to take place in Washington, D.C. on Monday, December 4, 2017 from 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. in Room 325 of the Russell Senate Office Building, and will include presenters and guest panelists from across the country.

Light refreshments will be served beginning at 9:45 a.m.
