How Do I Set Up an ABLE Account?

Updated as of January 18, 2024.

Follow this link to set up a Maryland ABLE account online. Alternatively, you may call 1-855-563-2253 or 1-844-888-2253 (TTY) for help setting up a Maryland ABLE account.

You’ll need some information:

  • Date of birth
  • Address
  • Social Security Number for the beneficiary and Authorized Legal Representative (if any).

If there is an ALR for a beneficiary over age 18, you’ll also need documentation of Power of Attorney, Legal Guardianship, or Conservatorship. If you want to transfer funds from a bank account electronically, you’ll want to have that bank information as well.
