You can only have one prepaid card connected to each ABLE account you manage or own. So, if you have an ABLE account for yourself and you’re an Authorized Legal Representative for a beneficiary who also has an ABLE account, you can have one prepaid card with your name for your ABLE account and another one for the beneficiary with both of your names on the card. Your card must be activated within 30 days of registering for a Card Account or your Card Account will be closed.
Once a prepaid card is activated, you can load the card with as little as $10 and up to $15,000 of money from an ABLE account. Purchases can be made online and in stores that accept prepaid cards all over the U.S. Use the “Credit” or “Debit” options to process your transaction. You can go online and review your card account activity, balance and settings from the Card tab of the ABLE account. It’s easy to reload money and manage expenses. If you ever need to freeze or secure your account, you can do it from your account or by calling customer service. Your card must be activated within 30 days of registering for a Card Account or your Card Account will be closed.
Once you are ready to enroll, you can set up your account here on line. When opening a Maryland ABLE account, have ready information about the beneficiary, qualifying disability, and how the ABLE account will be funded.
