A new law will help the families of people with disabilities set aside money to pay for housing, education, and assistive technology.

Under enabling federal legislation, Delaware enacted the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act just over two years ago. That law allowed the families of eligible disabled people to save up to $14,000 annually in ABLE accounts to pay care-related expenses without endangering benefits from federal means-tested programs. Signed into law July 28th by Gov. John Carney in his Dover office, House Bill 145 removes the annual contribution limit from the ABLE accounts.

State Rep. Kevin Hensley, R-Townsend, is a co-sponsor of the new law and the father of a daughter with disabilities. Additional co-sponsors included State Reps. Ruth Briggs King and Deborah Hudson.
