PLUS, LEARN ABOUT NEW OPTIONAL ID CARDS FOR PEOPLE WITH DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES AND NY ABLE SAVINGS ACCOUNTS
Thanks to recent legislation, special identification cards are now available to people who have a medically diagnosed developmental disability. These new ID cards may be presented to law enforcement, firefighters and emergency medical services personnel to aid in the communication process. Another recent law allows for the opening of tax-free savings accounts to help people with disabilities maintain their health, independence and quality of life. The “NY ABLE” program provides families and individuals with a secure and practical way to save and invest funds without jeopardizing their eligibility for many important disability-related benefits, including SSI and Medicaid.
