General Overview
A webinar offered by the National Association of State Treasurers’ ABLE Savings Plans Network (ASPN) with guest speakers from the Social Security Administration.

You are invited to attend this special webinar to hear from ABLE state program administrators and Social Security Administration (SSA) experts. During this inaugural webinar of the ABLE Savings Plans Network (ASPN), participants will be equipped with the following:

  • General knowledge about the benefits of owning an ABLE Account;
  • Knowledge of the relationship between ABLE Accounts and Social Security Disability Benefits;
  • Understanding of ABLE-related information that must be provided to SSA; and
  • Resources on SSA benefits and ABLE Accounts.

Who will benefit from this webinar?
People with disabilities, their family members and legal representatives, SSA field office staff and leadership, disability advocacy and service provider organizations, and state ABLE program administrators.

The National Association of State Treasurers (NAST) hosts the only national working alliance for all ABLE Programs, called the ABLE Savings Plans Network (ASPN). ASPN is a working alliance of state ABLE program administrators and industry stakeholders substantively coordinating on industry issues, advocacy, and outreach. Additionally, the National Association of State Treasurers Foundation launched ABLE today, which supports national outreach for ABLE Programs, directly engages the disability community, and provides resources on ABLE Accounts.

Together, ASPN and ABLE today work to empower individuals with disabilities towards more independent and secure futures by offering tools and resources on the benefits of ABLE Accounts. ABLE Accounts can be used for disability-related expenses without losing access to federal means-tested benefits.
