NC ABLE Program

North Carolina Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Program



The North Carolina Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act, signed into law in 2015, means people with disabilities can save money in a tax-deferred account for some of their expenses related to health and wellness, employment supports, education, housing, and other costs not covered by Medicaid. 

This new type of account allows people with disabilities to save up to and including $100,000, which will not be counted toward a person’s eligibility for SSI or other federal means-tested programs. A total of $14,000 a year can be contributed to this account from various sources such as friends, family and employment earnings.  ​

The North Carolina Department of State Treasurer is coordinating the implementation, administration and outreach of this important new program.
