 IL ABLE is a savings and investment plan that makes it possible for people with disabilities and their families to save and invest their money for expenses related to living with a disability. ABLE accounts give people with disabilities greater financial independence while preserving federal benefits; During the webinar, participants will learn ABLE account basics, how an account can increase financial independence, eligibility to own an IL ABLE account, and who can open an account, contribute to, save and spend with an account and more.

“As a State Representative, I want to make sure every single person in my district has the resources they need to live well,” said Rep. Lewis. “This event is about making sure our community here living with disabilities has the financial tools to do that and I am happy to provide this resource alongside the State Treasurer’s office.”

Representative Lewis encourages his constituents to pass this information along to anyone who may find it helpful and to contact his office with questions about the event at 630-349-0645.
