What type of disabilities qualify for an account?

A person with any disability that qualifies for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) or blindness that developed before the age of 26* is eligible for an account. Some of the conditions recognized by the Social Security Administration that could qualify based on the level of severity include: blindness, Down Syndrome, hearing loss (deafness), epilepsy, autism/Asperger and more. Those who don’t receive Social Security benefits are still eligible if they are able to get a signed Diagnosis Form from a licensed physician.

*The ABLE Age Adjustment Act has been passed, expanding the eligibility age from 26 to 46, beginning January 1, 2026.
