Hawaiʻi ABLE Savings Program

After years of careful planning, Hawaii has chosen to partner with the State of Oregon and their ABLE for ALL Savings Plan.

For as little as $25 dollars, eligible Hawaii residents can open an account and begin to save for a variety of purchases without risking government benefits.

Hawaiʻi ABLE is proud to be part of the ABLE for ALL Savings Plan network, a national savings program administered by the State of Oregon.

ABLE for ALL provides tax-advantaged savings accounts for individuals and their families and allows you to save for qualified disability expenses, invest for future needs, and keep the benefits you rely on every day. Hawaiʻi ABLE is excited to now offer these benefits to all eligible Hawaiʻi residents.

What are ABLE accounts?

The Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act of 2014 allows states to create tax-advantaged savings programs for eligible people with disabilities (designated beneficiaries). Funds from these 529A ABLE accounts can help designated beneficiaries pay for qualified disability expenses. Distributions from ABLE accounts are tax-free if used for qualified disability expenses. ABLE accounts allow people with qualifying disabilities to save money without losing their state and federal benefits. Money saved in ABLE accounts does not count against asset limits in some federal programs, for example for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid.

Information on ABLE accounts can be found at:


ABLE accounts offered through the Hawaiʻi ABLE Savings Program or ABLE for ALL Savings Plan accounts are not guaranteed by the State of Hawaiʻi or the State of Oregon, any state agency or subdivision thereof, or their authorized agents or affiliates. You could lose money by investing in an ABLE for ALL Savings Plan account. Consider investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing. Before you open an account, you should carefully read and understand the Plan Disclosure Booklet and Participation Agreement.
