Maryland ABLE Image

family at computerMaryland ABLE is seeking input on who can manage an ABLE account. The Treasury Department has issued final regulations for Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) savings and investment programs that included new provisions for who can assist a person with a disability to manage their account and would allow for people other than those serving as Power of Attorney or guardian of property, with specific relationships to the person, to manage the ABLE account for the person. Implementation of these new provisions of the regulations would require a change in the Maryland statute. The Maryland ABLE program is seeking input from people with disabilities, family members, and service providers before moving forward with how we may implement these new classifications of account managers for people over the age of eighteen. We value your input and invite you to share your thoughts by participating in one of the virtual focus groups:
