I'm probably going to lose SSI regardless in 2018 or 2019 as my earnings
and SSDI go up. So, keeping SSI long-term really isn't my goal for an ABLE
account. My goal is to have a decent cushion built up to help me handle the
unavoidable bumpy road ahead more smoothly while I try to find a payroll
job to replace my current job as an independent contractor. I just don't
fund an account and then find out there was way more red tape than I
realized.
