An Accessible Guide to ABLE Accounts in ASL

by | Feb 2, 2023

For disabled people, navigating the world of financial planning can be a daunting task. Fortunately, there are options available to make it easier, such as ABLE accounts. ABLE accounts are tax-advantaged savings accounts specifically designed for disabled individuals and their families.

The CSD Learns team is excited to announce the formal launch of our video about ABLE accounts, delivered in American Sign Language (ASL) for the Deaf community. Whether you’re new to learning about your financial options, or have been researching ABLE accounts for years, you will benefit from a look into this topic in ASL.  We at CSD Learns understand that financial planning is an important part of life – however, it can be difficult, especially where information isn’t always translated into accessible formats.  In this 29-minute online video, we break down everything you need to know about ABLE accounts with simple, clear explanations of the benefits these types of savings accounts can bring individuals with disabilities. You’ll learn everything about ABLE accounts, from legally setting up an account and managing your funds, to understanding available tax benefits – all explained through visuals, signed vocabulary, and ASL translations.  We are grateful for the partnership with ABLE today, National Association of State Treasurers (NAST), and Wells Fargo for making this possible. ABLE Today is a wonderful resource for learning more about the unique needs of each state program. Details in their analysis tool include requirements, fees, contribution limits, how to enroll, and more. 

We extend our gratitude to NAST, ABLE today, Wells Fargo, and supporters like you for helping make this project happen.
