New York ABLE Program

The NYSDDPC, in collaboration with the New York State Comptroller’s office, has put together this video to explain the benefits of the NY ABLE Program. The NY ABLE Program is a tax-advantaged savings program for individuals with disabilities and their families to save for their current or long term needs while maintaining their ability to benefit from federal benefits programs such as SSI, SSDI, and Medicaid. The program offers multiple investment options, including a checking account and debit card option, allowing individuals with disabilities to maintain their independence and have quick and easy access to their own money.
