FRANKFORT, KY. (August 8, 2018) – Kentucky State Treasurer Allison Ball announced that STABLE Kentucky will be taking part in #ABLEtoSave month for the second year in a row.
“STABLE Kentucky accounts provide Kentuckians with disabilities the opportunity to save money without jeopardizing access to benefits such as Medicaid and SSI,” Treasurer Ball said. “During ABLE to Save Month, we are working to increase awareness of STABLE Kentucky so that more eligible Kentuckians can utilize this resource to build wealth.”
#ABLEtoSave is a month-long grassroots educational campaign about the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act. Throughout the month of August, Treasurer Ball’s office will highlight the benefits, eligibility, and more of STABLE Kentucky accounts. For the second year in a row, this celebration also includes a proclamation from Governor Bevin declaring August #ABLEtoSave Month.
Treasurer Ball launched STABLE Kentucky in December 2016. STABLE Kentucky is Kentucky’s implementation of the federal ABLE Act, passed in 2014. Currently, over 240 Kentuckians have opened STABLE Accounts under the program with a total market value of over $1 million.
