Employment Toolkit

Working individuals who are IAble account owners have the opportunity to contribute an additional $12,880 on top of the $16,000 annual contribution limit without compromising their eligibility for public benefits. In an effort to ensure people with disabilities have access to opportunities to earn an income, and employers are helping them achieve a better life experience, IAble has created toolkits for employees and employers to utilize.
