It’s more than just investing.
It’s investing for a better life.

Georgia STABLE is helping Georgians to achieve greater independence and financial security through the power of STABLE accounts.

Georgia STABLE provides:

For too long, people with disabilities could not save for the future out of fear of losing needed government benefits. The disability community fought long and hard to change this, and together we’ve come up with a solution.

A STABLE account through Georgia STABLE is a way for Georgians to save for qualified expenses, invest for future needs, and keep the benefits you rely on every day.

Are you eligible?

Any resident of Georgia who developed a qualifying disability before the age of 26 is eligible for a STABLE account through Georgia STABLE. If someone cannot open an account themselves, an Authorized Legal Representative (also known as an ALR) can do it for them.

An ALR must attest that they have been selected by the beneficiary with legal capacity, designated as the Power of Attorney, Legal Guardian, or Conservator for the beneficiary, are a spouse, parent, sibling, or grandparent of the beneficiary, or are a representative payee (individual or organization).

What are the benefits of a STABLE account through Georgia STABLE?

Accountholders can save and invest up to $18,000 a year (and, if employed, up to $14,580 more) for a wide range of qualified expenses. The account’s growth is tax-free and your contributions may qualify for a state income tax deduction.

Best of all, your Supplemental Security Income (SSI) will not be affected as long as the account balance stays below $100,000. Other federally means-tested benefits are not affected regardless of the amount saved in the account.

You’ll also have access to our network of established partners in the disability community for more support in reaching your financial goals.
