ABLEnow accounts are available to eligible U.S. citizens and legal residents, regardless of state residency.
To open an ABLEnow account, the ABLE Act requires an “Eligible Individual” to have a qualifying disability that started before the age of 26. In addition, the individual must meet at least one of the following criteria:
- Entitlement to benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) based on blindness or disability; or
- Self-certification of a qualifying disability.
