Hawai‘i ABLE Savings Program

What are ABLE accounts?

The Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act of 2014 allows states to create tax-advantaged savings programs for eligible people with disabilities (designated beneficiaries). Funds from these 529A ABLE accounts can help designated beneficiaries pay for qualified disability expenses. Distributions from ABLE accounts are tax-free if used for qualified disability expenses. ABLE accounts allow people with qualifying disabilities to save money without losing their state and federal benefits. Money saved in ABLE accounts does not count against asset limits in some federal programs, for example for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.

Information on ABLE accounts can be found at:

ABLE National Resource Center

Internal Revenue Service (ABLE Accounts – Tax Benefit for People with Disabilities)
