Ohio is the first state to launch STABLE Accounts, which is a similar to a college savings plan. Parents and Caregivers can put money in the account now and if something happens where they can not continue giving care, then that money will help the disabled individual be independent. The money can be used for basic living expenses, housing, transportation, education, and employment training. Ohio Treasurer Josh Mandel says it's easy for people to sign up. You only need $50 dollars to start and you can put up to $14,000 into the account each year.
