Wednesday, Apr 25th is a national ABLE Act Call-In Day. Many national organizations including the National Down Syndrome Congress, Autism Speaks, Muscular Dystrophy Association, and National Disability Institute are encouraging phone calls to members of Congress asking them to co-sponsor the important Achieving a Better Life Experience Act.
The ABLE Act would give people with disabilities the same types of flexible savings tools that all other Americans
have through college savings accounts, health savings accounts, and
individual retirement accounts. Contributions to ABLE accounts would grow tax free and be easy and inexpensive to create.
Find out if your Senators and Representatives have co-sponsored the bill by tracking it in the House and the Senate (and click on co-sponsors). If they haven't, call their Washington DC offices (phone numbers here) and ask them to co-sponsor it.
The NDSC has put together a telephone script you can use .. click here to get all the information.
Let Congress know how important this is for individuals with disabilities to have the same opportunities to save for their future as anyone else.
