Treasurer Murante, Enable Savings Plan Launch New Account Bonus Program

$50 Bonus to Benefit 40 New Account Owners

Lincoln, Neb. (October 1, 2019) – Nebraska State Treasurer John Murante and First National Bank of Omaha today announced the kickoff of the Enable Savings Plan’s $50 New Account Bonus Program.

From October 1 through December 31, 2019 a $50 bonus contribution will be awarded to the first 40 eligible individuals who open and contribute a minimum of $50 to a new Enable Savings Plan account. Accounts can be opened online at www.enablesavings.com or on paper and mailed to the address on the enrollment form. To claim the bonus, visit www.enablesavings.com/bonus.

“Saving for disability-related expenses is vital for individuals with disabilities and their loved ones,” said Nebraska State Treasurer John Murante. “As an extension of our goal to help every Account Owner on the road to financial security and independence, we are proud to once again offer this opportunity for new members of the Enable community."

Enable Account Owners represent 40 states, with 37 percent of the Plan’s total assets belonging to Account Owners outside of Nebraska. An annual initiative, the New Account Bonus Program is aimed to magnify Enable’s impact in the disability community nationwide.

“As we near the holiday season, we are pleased to gift this account bonus to eligible individuals,” said Deborah Goodkin, Managing Director, Savings Plans, First National Bank of Omaha. “The many benefits of an Enable account make it a smart financial choice, and with the New Account Bonus Program there is truly no better time to start saving.”   

Launched in June 2016, the Enable Savings Plan was one of the first national ABLE savings plans offered. Enable provides tax-free savings accounts to people with disabilities, allowing them to save without affecting their eligibility for public benefits like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI).
