One of my favorite sayings has always been “Celebrate what you accomplish, but raise the bar each time you succeed.” Looking back on the past year, it is clear that the Enable Savings Plan has perfectly embodied this expression. The number of accomplishments we have achieved over the course of the last 365 days is truly remarkable. From Enable’s first anniversary, to the proclamation of August as #ABLEtoSave month in Nebraska, the Enable Savings Plan has continuously soared to new heights while striving to support the disability community.
I am so proud to play a role in helping the disability community achieve financial independence, and it has been truly rewarding to witness firsthand the profound impact that Enable’s hard work and dedication have made on so many lives.
In 2017, we celebrated the Enable Checking Option, which helped to improve the ease and access of the plan. In 2018, the annual contribution limit will be increased from $14,000 to $15,000 – another important milestone for Enable.
This past year was an amazing success, but we couldn’t have done it alone. We are so grateful for the enthusiasm and continuous support of the many national and local disability organizations who help to spread the word about Enable and share our mission of advocating for the disability community at large. Looking ahead to 2018, we are eager to partner with even more organizations, expand our reach, and see the ABLE 2.0 legislation come to fruition, improving ABLE plans for individuals with disabilities across the country.
From the Enable family to yours, we would like to wish you and your family a happy and healthy 2018. We’d love to hear from you firsthand about how Enable has impacted your life. To share your story, feel free to reach out to us on our Facebook page.
