A representative from Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel’s office will be present to explain and answer any questions you might have pertaining to the new STABLE accounts. The STABLE accounts are a nationwide enrollment for people with disabilities, a tax-free savings plan for disability-related expenses, plus those enrolled are able to save and invest without losing needs-based benefits.

Topics for the spring 2017 lecture series will include Waivers, Navigating Social Security, Medicaid and BCMH, Local Resources and Transition Planning.
