One of my favorite sayings has always been “Celebrate what you accomplish, but raise the bar each time you succeed.” Looking back on the past year, it is clear that the Enable Savings Plan Alabama has perfectly embodied this expression since its launch in February.

I am so proud to play a role in helping the disability community achieve financial independence, and it has been truly rewarding to witness firsthand the profound impact that Enable AL’s hard work and dedication have made on so many lives. Not to mention, it was exciting to see that August was proclaimed as #ABLEtoSave month in the state of Alabama.

While 2017 was an amazing success, we couldn’t have done it alone. We are so grateful for the enthusiasm and continuous support of the many national and local disability organizations who help to spread the word about Enable AL and share our mission of advocating for the disability community at large. Looking ahead to 2018, we are eager to partner with even more organizations, expand our reach, and increase the annual contribution limit from $14,000 to $15,000 – another important milestone for the plan.

From the Enable AL family to yours, we wish you a happy and healthy 2018. We’d love to hear from you firsthand about how Enable AL has impacted your life. To share your story, feel free to reach out to us on our Facebook page.
