THE “NO STRINGS ATTACHED BOOK CLUB”
SPONSORED BY THE SOCIAL COMMITTEE OF THE PTOS

"Behold the Dreamers" by Imbolo Mbue

“As the story progresses, the plot, which is premised on a class divide, unfolds to ­reveal many more fissures crackling beneath the surface — immigration proceedings don’t go well, marriages falter, friendships fail, children stray. There are a lot of spinning plates, and Mbue balances them skillfully, keeping ­everything in motion. Even more impressive is the vitality that gleams through the film of gloom as the story becomes less about what happens to the Jongas than about their efforts to make peace with their fate, whatever and wherever it might be"- CRISTINA HENRÍQUEZ (New York Times, 9/1/16)

PTOS Financial & Insurance Talk #4:  ResponsAbility & PTOS hosts “Learn about 529 ABLE savings plans for disability-related expenses

 

2017-2018 PTOS FINANCIAL PLANNING AND INSURANCE TALK #4

 

Tues., Aug. 22, from 12-1 PM       (*Event was rescheduled from July 18 to July 27 and finally to 8/22.)

Randolph Conference Center

Do you have a disability or care for someone with a disability? Want to learn more about a powerful new investment vehicle to help families and individuals pay for disability-related expenses? On Aug. 22, from 12-1 PM, a representative from Virginia’s ABLEnow program will give a presentation on 529 ABLE accounts. These accounts provide tax-free earnings that qualified people with disabilities can use to pay for short- and long-term disability needs. They work similarly to 529 college savings accounts.

 

In addition to helping you save, money put toward 529 Able accounts does not count toward the savings and assets ceiling that Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income requires. Funds can be used for a range of needs such as housing (including mortgage payments), health care, transportation, and education. The accounts are made possible by the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act signed into law in 2014.

 

The hour-long event will be held in the Randolph Conference Center and online, via WebEx (https://goo.gl/DHNfmZ). Before you go, visit the ABLE National Resource Center so you can come prepared with your questions. Also, read “A Closer Look at 529 Able Accounts” in the New York Times.

 

This event is sponsored by ResponsAbility, the USPTO’s affinity group for disability awareness and action and the Patent and Trademark Office Society (PTOS) and is part of the PTOS financial seminar series. For more information, contact Alex Camarota or Angela Nguyen.

 

Light refreshments will be provided.

 

Hope to see you there!
