  • STABLE Accounts
    6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 16, E. S. Weiant Center Gym, 116 N. 22nd St., Newark.
    Presenter: Doug Jackson, Deputy Director-STABLE Account at the Office of the Ohio Treasurer of State

A STABLE Account is an investment account available to eligible individuals with disabilities. It allows individuals with disabilities to save and invest money without losing eligibility for public benefits programs, such as Medicaid, SSI or SSDI.
STABLE Accounts are investment accounts, similar to 529 college savings accounts or 401(k) retirement accounts. When you deposit money into your  STABLE Account, it will be invested in different options that you choose. While you can still withdraw and spend your money whenever you need it, STABLE Accounts also allow you to grow your money and to save long-term for disability expenses.
On Nov. 16, Doug Jackson, Deputy Director-STABLE Account at the Office of the Ohio Treasurer of State, will share much more information and answer questions about this valuable option.

After each presentation, department leaders of the Licking County Board of Developmental Disabilities will share updates on their departments and what’s new at the Board.

All programs are available to families free of charge. If you have any questions, please contact Beth Tharp at beth.tharp@lcountydd.org or 740-349-6588.
