Background: In 2014, federal legislation known as the Stephen Beck, Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience Act of 2014 (ABLE Act) was enacted, which allows individuals with qualifying disabilities to establish tax-free savings accounts to cover qualified expenses without impacting the individual’s eligibility for benefits programs.  In 2016, under the leadership of Senator Jeb Bradley and Representative Lynne Ober, New Hampshire enacted SB 265 into law. The legislation authorizes the establishment of an ABLE savings account program in New Hampshire.  Those interested in learning more can contact the Governor’s Commission on Disability or the New Hampshire State Treasurer’s office.
