Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts are now available in Maine! This free webinar will provide information about the program in Maine.
In October 2021, Maine launched the ABLE ME program in partnership with the Maine State Treasurer’s Office and Bangor Savings Bank.
ABLE accounts help people with disabilities save money for qualified disabilities expenses, such as education, housing, transportation, employment training, assistive technology, personal support services, healthcare expenses, financial management and other expenses. Money saved in an ABLE account does not count as an asset for means-tested public benefits, such as SSI, MaineCare, SNAP, and subsidized housing.
