Treasurer Lynn Fitch Hosting Mississippi ABLE Registration With Hattiesburg-Area Residents Program Officially Launches Across Mississippi

Mississippi ABLE is a new tax-advantaged, State-sponsored savings program that helps families with disabilities save for their education, housing, medical, and other needs to achieve a better life experience.  It is officially launching this week across Mississippi.

With this launch, Mississippi becomes the 42nd state to implement an ABLE (Achieving a Better Life Experience) program, which was created by Congress in 2014 and established in Mississippi in 2017.  Mississippi ABLE has a nine-member Board, on which Treasurer Fitch sits.
