Is there a way I can save money while on SSI/SSDI?


You might qualify for an ABLE Account if you were “disabled” before age 26.

  • This helps with Asset Test not Income Test for benefits
  • Money transferred to ABLE Accounts does not interfere with Medicaid and SSI
  • ABLE Accounts can be used for Qualified Disability Expenses
  • The accounts have a general contribution limit of $16,000/year
  • If you work, you can transfer wages up to the Federal Poverty Level ($13,590 in 2022) in addition to the general contribution limit
