The State of Utah has partnered with the State of Ohio to create ABLE Utah, a program that offers the STABLE Account Plan to eligible Utah residents for lower annual investment fees than would otherwise be available. ABLE Utah accounts allow individuals with disabilities to save and invest money without losing eligibility for certain public benefits programs, like Medicaid or SSI. Earnings in an ABLE Utah account are not subject to federal income tax, so long as the earnings are spent on qualified disability expenses.
