The National Wheelchair Basketball Association (NWBA) has partnered with ABLEnow, a national ABLE savings program for eligible Americans living with disabilities.

ABLEnow is a financial tool designed to help eligible individuals with disabilities to save up to $15,000 per year without impacting their disability benefits.

As part of the exclusive partnership, athletes and their families will receive educational information about these accounts to understand who qualifies, ways the funds may be used, and how to enroll online, notes a media release from ABLEnow.

“We are excited to work alongside the National Wheelchair Basketball Association to spread the word about ABLEnow,” says Mary Morris, CEO of Virginia529, the agency that administers ABLEnow, in the release.

“Millions of ABLE-eligible individuals are not aware that federal and state laws have changed to create these new programs. ABLEnow looks forward to helping the NWBA community save for today’s expenses and invest for the future while maintaining essential benefits,” she adds.

“The National Wheelchair Basketball Association is excited to partner with ABLEnow and highlight the valuable service they can provide to our membership,” states Anthony Bartkowski, executive director of the NWBA.

“As our athletes know, competing in wheelchair basketball serves as a means for recreation and promotes a healthy lifestyle for those with physical disabilities. However, equipment and tournament travel can be expensive. As we seek out strategic partnerships, we focus on partners like ABLEnow that are beneficial to our membership and encourage growth for the sport of wheelchair basketball.”
