ABLE is Worth Sharing


Champions of the ABLE Act are featured on a new list honoring people who are reimagining the future of financial caregiving.

The late Stephen Beck, Jr. led advocacy efforts that resulted in passage of the Stephen E. Beck, Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act of 2014, commonly known as the ABLE Act. His daughter Natalie was the first customer to open an ABLEnow account in 2016. His widow Catherine Beck was appointed to the board of Virginia529, the agency that administers ABLEnow, in 2020.

The Becks are recognized on a first-of-its-kind list of the people doing the most to reimagine and rehumanize the care system. Read more about the ABLE Act and other initiatives currently expanding economic opportunity for the historically marginalized on the Care Guild.
