Training Overview Description

This training will provide information on the ALASKAble Plan, which is Alaska's ABLE program. We will review the plan highlights, who is eligible, how to maintain your benefits including how much can be deposited into an ABLE account, recommended documentation, qualified disability expenses, and overview of the website including where to find the Plan Disclosure Document, how to open an account online, and other frequently asked questions.

Beneficiaries receiving public benefits with a resource restriction will find the ABLE Plan an invaluable tool in managing their benefits especially as they return to work. This training is intended for care providers, employment specialists, CWICs, and Financial and Work Incentive Navigators.
