Charlton Reminds Those With Special Needs to Sign Up for PA ABLE Savings Accounts
HARRISBURG—Rep. Alex Charlton (R-Springfield) is urging those with special needs and their families that they have a new tax-advantaged option for saving on medical costs.

“As the father of a daughter with a disability, I am keenly aware of the value of this program,” said Charlton. “The PA ABLE program will allow for the opportunity to save for future needs and special medical and adaptive goods and technologies, without impacting their needs-based benefits.”

PA ABLE savings account benefits include the ability to:

• Save up to $14,000 each year.
• Have savings grow tax-free.
• Use the account to pay for a wide range of disability-related expenses.
• Make withdrawals exempt from federal and state income tax when used for qualified disability expenses.
• Have accounts exempt from inheritance tax.
• Have ABLE savings excluded from eligibility determinations for Supplemental Security Income benefits (savings up to $100,000), other means-tested federal programs, Medical Assistance, and other state means-tested disability and health benefits.

“This program gives families options which helps to ensure the financial security of their loved ones with disabilities,” said Charlton. “I hope and highly recommend that people take advantage of this program.”
