Webinar Recording for ABLE Accounts in Maine
The recording of the February 2, 2022 Maine ABLE Accounts webinar is now available on the MMC Vocational Services YouTube Playlist.
This webinar gives an overview of Maine’s new Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) program called ABLE ME. 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.
Additional information and resources about this program may be found on the Maine Medical Center – Benefits Counseling Services website
This webinar was offered in partnership with ABLE National Resource Center, Bangor Savings Bank, Benefits Counseling Services at Maine Medical Center, Maine Department of Health and Human Services Office of Aging and Disability Services, Maine Department of Labor Bureau of Rehabilitation Services, and Office of the Maine State Treasurer.
