2022 – 12/30

The new SECURE 2.0 law makes a favorable change to Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) accounts, although it doesn’t kick in for a few years. Tax-exempt ABLE programs are established by states to help individuals with disabilities. Before the new law, in order to be the beneficiary of an ABLE account, an individual’s disability or blindness must have occurred before age 26. SECURE 2.0 increases this age limit to 46, which will make more people eligible to benefit from ABLE accounts. This provision is effective for tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2025.
