  • CalABLE - Savings and Investment Program Training (June 12, 2019)

CalABLE is a savings and investment plan offered by the state of California to individuals with disabilities.

Eligible individuals, family, friends and employers can contribute up to $15,000 a year without affecting the account beneficiary's public disability benefits. Recipients of SSI benefits can save as much as $100,000 with no effect on federal and California state benefits. CalABLE account owners who work can contribute even more to their accounts. Best of all, earnings on qualified withdrawals from a CalABLE account are federal and California state tax-free.

San Gabriel/Pomona Regional Center will have a CalABLE representative to present on the CalABLE savings and investment program on June 12, 2019 in our Conference Center (Rooms A & B). We will be offering two sessions:

  • Session 1  9:30 a.m. to 11:30a.m.

At SG/PRC we understand that becoming familiar with the regional center and learning to cope with your child’s developmental disability can be a challenging - even overwhelming - experience for you and your family. We also know that support and information which is provided by another parent can be very helpful. SG/PRC and Alma Family Services are partners in offering parents support through the Parent Mentor Initiative.
