Helping Families Cope With Disability Expenses 

A new law signed this week will help families better afford expenses associated with caring for a loved one with a disability.

Act 17 of 2016, formerly Senate Bill 879, creates the Pennsylvania Achieving a Better Life Experience Act (PA ABLE) so that families can establish tax-exempt savings accounts specifically for people with qualified disabilities. The accounts can be used for a wide range of disability-related expenses including health care, housing and transportation without jeopardizing eligibility for important programs on which individuals with disabilities must often depend.

The tax-exempt savings accounts are modeled on section 529 of the Internal Revenue Code, which recognizes state-established savings programs to meet future college expenses. The Pennsylvania Treasury has been administering the Pennsylvania 529 program since 1993 and will administer the ABLE Program.

Thank you….
to everyone who attended Wednesday’s Senior Active Living Expo at the Treasure Lake Church Family Life Center. I enjoyed spending time with everyone, and need to thank the Clearfield County Area Agency on Aging, Care Unlimited, DuBois Continuum of Care and Today’s Senior for partnering with my staff and me to hold this event.

Thanks also to Fullington Bus for providing transportation.

Good luck…..
to all the young hunters taking part in this Saturday's annual youth spring turkey hunt. Please remember all participants must be accompanied by an adult. Hunting hours during the youth hunt end at noon.

Junior hunters and mentored youth may also participate in the statewide spring gobbler season, which takes place next Saturday, April 30
