ABLE United Webinar Graphic

How ABLE United and Special Needs Trusts Work Together

ABLE United offers individuals with disabilities the opportunity to save up to $15,000 each year, the potential to experience tax-free growth, all without negatively impacting means-tested government benefits. But, how does an ABLE account compare to other financial planning tools, such as a special needs trust? 

We’re hosting a webinar with Catherine Davey, account administrator for her daughter, attorney and owner of Davey Law Group, P.A. in Orlando. Learn how easy it is to use your ABLE United account on its own, as well as how it can work alongside a special needs trust.   

Register today and learn why everyone eligible in the disability community should consider having an ABLE account. Join us on Tuesday, October 22, 11:00 AM - Noon ET. Speakers Include: John Finch, Director of ABLE United and Catherine Davey. Attorney at Davey Law Group, P.A.
