What Is Needed To Create An ABLE Account?

There are only five states currently that have the ABLE account operational: Michigan, Florida, Tennessee, Ohio and Nebraska. Other states will be added over the next several months, but those are the only five that exist as of now. More are expected shortly.

For those in Michigan wanting to set up an ABLE account, they can navigate to the Michigan ABLE website or type in MIABLE, which will bring up the documentation needed to get an ABLE account started.

Other Things To Know Regarding The Michigan ABLE Account

In Michigan, one helpful fact to know is that although contributions to an ABLE account are not federally tax-deductible, they are, however, tax-deductible for the purposes of Michigan income tax. So in the State of Michigan, your contributions to an ABLE account are tax-deductible for state income tax purposes.

Establishing Disability Before The 26th Birthday Of The Specially-Challenged Individual

You should know that the disability must have been documented prior to the 26th birthday of the beneficiary. In other words, you have to establish the disability prior to the 26th birthday of the specially-challenged individual for whom you are opening the account or contributing to it. This is mandatory.

If the individual is already receiving SSI or Social Security Disability Insurance prior to age 26, there is no need for any further documentation. It is presumed that the disability arose prior to the individual’s 26th birthday. However, if the individual is older than 26 and is not receiving SSI or SSDI, it will be necessary to document that the disability arose prior to the 26th birthday, and this would be through either a treating physician, hospital records, clinic records or school records.
