A community awareness event was held friday at the WVU Health Sciences Center for WVABLE.
This is a partnership between the state treasurer’s office and West Virginia University’s Center for Excellence and Disabilities.
This program gives individuals with disabilities an opportunity to save and invest without jeopardizing needs based public benefits.
“We’re essentially just spreading the word that ‘here’s this program that can be helpful to you and we can guide you through the process of setting up that account through our office and answer any questions that they may have,” said Josh Stowers, Assistant State Treasurer.
