In the past few years, U.S. states started adopting the Able Act, which provides for tax advantaged savings accounts for people with disabilities.  These accounts can be used to cover expenses such as housing, education, and transportation, to name but a few.  To plan for the financial security of family members with disability, or to plan for your own financial independence as a person with disability, it is essential you know how the Able Act works, and how it can be a game changer.  Special guests on this episode include Chris Rodriquez, Director of Public Policy at the National Disability Institutte, and Mark Friese, Senior Vice President at Merrill Lynch.
