In February 2018, the West Virginia State Treasurer’s Office will launch WVABLE, a program designed to give people with disabilities more independence and financial security.
WVABLE is made possible by the Achieving a Better Life Experience in West Virginia Act, also known as the West Virginia ABLE Act. Once the program is launched in early 2018, individuals with disabilities will be able to save and invest up to $15,000 per year without losing eligibility for public benefit programs such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Individuals who developed disabilities before the age of 26 may be eligible to open an account.
