Treasurer Fitzpatrick Announces MO ABLE Program Reaches 1,000 Accounts


                Jefferson City, MO – Missouri State Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick today announced that MO ABLE has reached 1,000 accounts, a major milestone for the program. Launched in April 2017, MO ABLE allows people with disabilities and their families to save up to $15,000 per year, tax-free, without losing federal benefits.


                “Reaching 1,000 accounts has been a goal of mine since taking office three months ago,” Treasurer Fitzpatrick said. “MO ABLE is a program that improves the day-to-day lives of Missourians and their families. I look forward to growing this program further and working to ensure that eligible Missourians know about the life-changing benefits of this program and use it.”


Earlier this month, Treasurer Fitzpatrick announced a partnership with CoxHealth, allowing employees to deposit money from their paychecks directly into their MO ABLE accounts. Treasurer Fitzpatrick also sent a letter to Missouri’s U.S. Congressional delegation urging their support for the ABLE Age Adjustment Act which raises the eligibility age for ABLE from 26 to 46 years-old.


                Missouri’s MO ABLE program is one of the largest ABLE programs in the country.
