ABLE Act Promotes Independence in WI

Posted on by wisibs

Individuals with disabilities previously risked health benefits if they saved more than $2,000.  Recently, WisconSibs Executive Director, Harriet Redman,  and Board Chairman Ed Ruffolo, attended an event in Green Bay celebrating the signing of the Wisconsin ABLE (Achieving a Better Life Experience) Act which will allow accounts to be created in Wisconsin.  GreenBayHarrietEd

The U.S. Congress passed it and President Obama signed the ABLE Act in December 2014. Our thanks to U.S. Congressman Reid Ribble for meeting with WisconSibs families to learn the impact this bill would have on families in WI and throughout the U.S.  Each state must now approve in order to set up accounts in each state.  The Green Bay event thanked WI Representative John Macco for his leadership in passing the bill in Wisconsin.
