Today, Kansas State Treasurer Ron Estes launched the Kansas ABLE savings program with two special events; this morning at Inclusion Connections in Olathe and this afternoon at the Down Syndrome Society of Wichita.
Treasurer Estes, Congressman Kevin Yoder, President of National Down Syndrome Society Sara Weir, and NDSS DS-AMBASSADOR's® Rachel Mast and Tavrick Lawless joined the treasurer to announce that Kansas ABLE is now enrolling members at https://KS.SaveWithABLE.com. Currently, enrollees can choose between six different investments options. A banking product with a debit card will be available in the spring.
“The launch today is the product of the hard work of many people on many different levels,” Treasurer Estes said. “I’m grateful to the entire Kansas congressional delegation, including Congressman Yoder and Senator Moran, State Representative Erin Davis, former State Senator Greg Smith, State Senator Molly Baumgardner, and others like Jawanda and Rachel Mast, and the entire National Down Syndrome Society, among many others, who made enacting ABLE a true priority.”
Individuals do not need to be a resident of Kansas to enroll in the Kansas ABLE savings program. Enrollment can be completed at https://KS.SaveWithABLE.com or by calling 888.609.8919.
