Each month, the Law Offices of Linnea J. Levine PC will provide the latest Elder Law News for your consumption. Our hope is to keep you informed on any and all relevant information at our disposal. This month’s topic: What Expenses Can ABLE Accounts Pay For?

ABLE accounts, new savings plans for people with special needs to save for disability related expenses, may be used for an even broader array of products and services than many beneficiaries may realize.

For many young people with disabilities, the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) – aka food stamps — is a lifeline. But SNAP eligibility turns on a range of factors.
Since 1998 Linnea qualified and has maintained her qualifications for the designation of Certified Elder Law Attorney (CELA) awarded by the National Elder Law Foundation, approved by the American Bar Association. (The Rules Committee of the Connecticut Superior Court currently does not recognize Elder Law as a concentrated area of practice). She has repeatedly been named as a Super Lawyer in Elder Law for the New England Region. Linnea was named “Most Valuable Member for 2014” by the Connecticut Chapter of the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys.
