ABLE Media Kit

The Oregon ABLE Savings Plan is a financial empowerment tool that allows individuals with disabilities and their families to save money for disability-related expenses.

Before ABLE, individuals with disabilities were disqualified for some critical state and federal benefits if they had more than $2,000. That will no longer happen if they keep their money in an ABLE account.
