On May 17, 2021 Alabama terminated its involvement with the Enable program and launched its own ABLE program called the Alabama ABLE Savings Plan. The plan is administered by the Alabama State Treasurer and will be the Official ABLE Plan of Alabama. The plan is established pursuant to the Alabama ABLE Act, §16-33C-1 through 25, Code of Alabama, as amended. The plan is designed to be a "qualified ABLE program" under Code Section 529A, which status permits a beneficiary of an ABLE Account established under the plan to make tax-free withdrawals to pay for qualified disability expenses under certain circumstances.
