The Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act of 2014 has made it possible for individuals with disabilities to save money to pay for qualified expenses without being taxed on the earnings and without losing eligibility for most government benefits. It was enacted to encourage and assist individuals and families in saving private funds to supplement government benefits in supporting individuals with disabilities to maintain health, independence, and quality of life.
