A New Way to Save for Children With Disabilities: Under the Achieving a Better Life Experience Act (the ABLE Act), which was signed into law in December 2014, certain accounts for individuals with special needs will grow tax-free if the money is used for qualified expenses, such as education, housing, transportation and health care not covered by insurance. To be eligible, the beneficiary can be any age, but the disabilities must have been documented before age 26. The article includes information on how deposits in an ABLE account will be covered by federal deposit insurance.
