The ABLE National Resource Center is a collaborative whose supporters share the goal of accelerating the design and availability of ABLE accounts.
The ABLE National Resource Center (ANRC) is a collaborative that brings together the investment, support and resources of some of the country's largest and most influential national disability organizations in an effort to accelerate the design and availability of ABLE accounts to meet the needs of individuals with disabilities and their families. Founded and managed by National Disability Institute (NDI), the ANRC's goal is to provide consistent, reliable information concerning the benefits of an ABLE account. In addition, the ANRC aims to educate individuals with disabilities and their families, state government and legislatures, financial service companies and financial planners and attorneys - who focus on trust and estate planning - about ABLE’s potential positive impact on the lives of millions of Americans with disabilities.

The U.S. Congress introduced the ABLE Age Adjustment Act (S. 331 and H.R. 1219) in February 2021. Once passed, this legislation will amend the Internal Revenue Code by increasing the age of eligibility of beneficiaries of ABLE accounts from the onset of disability before age 26 to onset before age 46. The National Association of State Treasurers and its members support this change to the Stephen Beck, Jr. Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act. To assist State Treasurers, ABLE program administrators and other stakeholders in advocating for this change, NAST has created the ABLE Age Adjustment Act Advocacy Toolkit for outreach to Members of Congress and the media. https://nast.org/able-act/
