What is an Authorized Legal Representative (ALR)?

An Authorized Legal Representative is someone who is legally authorized under state and federal law to make decisions on behalf of a beneficiary

You’re an ALR if you:

  • Can prove you have Power of Attorney, or are the Legal Guardian or Conservator of a beneficiary

  • Are the parent of a beneficiary who is under the age of 18

If you don’t meet these requirements, you can use this form for limited Power of Attorney.

Securing Peace of Mind

Maryland ABLE is an investment tool for people with disabilities, helping people with disabilities and their families to save for the future, build wealth, and continue to receive needed state and federal benefits. Beneficiaries can save for what’s needed today and plan for what’s needed in the future — things like a home, assistive technology, in-home services, training for a first job or retirement, and more.
