On March 24, we held a Twitter chat (#DEChat). During this event, we talked about the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act with Chris Rodriguez of the ABLE National Resource Center. Chris shared information about ABLE savings accounts and their effects on federal benefits. ABLE helps certain people with disabilities save for and afford the significant costs of living with a disability.

Our March #DEChat was an engaging conversation that gave people with disabilities, SSI and SSDI beneficiaries, and disability advocates the chance to learn more about ABLE. More than 30 organizations and individuals took part!

For everyone who joined the #DEChat, including Chris, we would like to say thank you!

If you were not able to join and want to see the conversation, you can download the transcript (PDF). The chat offered many resources to help you learn more about the ABLE Act, including:
