MO ABLE to Assist Those With Disabilities Participate in Vaccine Incentive Program

MO ABLE is working with the Department of Health and Senior Services to make sure those with disabilities are able to participate in the state vaccine incentive program. The MO ABLE Program allows individuals with disabilities and their families to receive up to $15,000 per year, tax-free, without losing federal benefits like Medicaid and SSI. Eligible expenses include housing, transportation, education and medical expenses. DHSS recently rolled out the new MO VIP Program, a vaccine incentive program that rewards Missourians for choosing to get the COVID-19 vaccine. MO ABLE, an extension of the 529 Program, was established in 2017 in Missouri to offer investment accounts to eligible people with disabilities by the Missouri State Treasurer’s Office.
