Make a Resolution to Save More

Now, save even more with ABLEnow! The total annual contribution limit to an ABLE account increased to $15,000 on January 1, 2018.

The ABLE Act specifically ties the annual contribution limit for ABLE accounts to the federal gift tax exclusion. To adjust for inflation, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) increased the federal gift tax exclusion from $14,000 in 2017 to $15,000 in 2018. Learn more about this change from the ABLE National Resource Center.

According to the Consumer Federation of America, those with a savings plan are twice as likely to save successfully. Here are three tips to grow your ABLEnow account this year:
