Current Bill Summary

SCS/HB 2125 - This act modifies provisions relating to savings programs.

ABLE ACT (SECTIONS 209.600, 209.605, 209.610, AND 209.630)

This act provides that the assets of the ABLE program shall at all times be preserved, invested, expended, and distributed only for the purposes set forth in current law as well as Section 529A of the Internal Revenue Code. Current law provides that no property rights in ABLE assets shall exist in favor of the state. This act removes that provision.

This provision is identical to SCS/SB 1074 (2016) and HB 2807 (2016).


The act further permits eligible financial institutions are permitted to offer and conduct savings promotion programs. A savings promotion program is a contest offered by an eligible financial institution that offers participants chances to win prizes if they make a minimum deposit into an eligible account.

This provision is identical to a provision in CCS/HCS/SB 833 (2016).
