Social Security’s Updated ABLE Guidance - A Deeper Dive Webinar
Thursday, April 26, 2018 – 2:00-3:30 p.m. ET
The Social Security Administration (SSA) recently published their updated guidance on the ABLE Act and ABLE Accounts. This guidance, formally known as their Program Operations Manuals System (POMS), provides in-depth information on how SSA staff, on the local and regional levels, should be interpreting and treating funds in an ABLE account for those individuals who are receiving Social Security Disability benefits, specifically beneficiaries of Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
The purpose of this webinar is to assist individuals with disabilities and their families, providers, ABLE programs and all other ABLE related stakeholders in better understanding this newly updated guidance. During the webinar, we will provide information and explanation on each of the seven sections that make up the SSA guidance:
1. What is an ABLE Account?
2. Definition of ABLE terms
3. When to exclude ABLE account contributions, balances, earnings and distributions
4. When to count ABLE account balances and distributions
5. How to verify, document and record ABLE account balances
6. How to verify, document and record ABLE account distributions
7. Handling and recording ABLE prepaid debit card information
