The Pennsylvania ABLE Savings Program (PA ABLE) is a state-offered program that gives individuals with qualifying disabilities a tax-advantaged way to save or invest without impacting their government benefits. All federal benefits are protected, including Medical Assistance (Medicaid) and, with some limitations, Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits, as are many Pennsylvania benefits. As savings earn interest or returns over time, neither federal nor Pennsylvania income tax is owed; and, when a withdrawal including that growth is taken, no income tax is owed as long as the withdrawal is used to pay for Qualified Disability Expenses. PA ABLE was made possible by the passage of both federal and Pennsylvania laws – the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) acts.
