New accounts signal that people with disabilities don’t have to be poor to get help

Aug 29, 2016

The time is getting closer for launching special tax-free savings accounts for Michiganders with disabilities.

It's called MI-ABLE, the Achieving a Better Life Experience program. 

MI-ABLE was signed into law in Michigan late last year. Now, word has come that the state has firmed up a contract with a Florida-based company to manage this savings program.

David Bulkowski is the executive director of Disability Advocates of Kent County. He joined us today to talk about these new ABLE savings accounts and what they'll mean for people with disabilities.
