The Illinois Treasurers Office has a couple of college fund programs that they urge all interested parents to look at.
Mike Frerichs is the State Treasurer of Illinois says he sat down and thought about the families that have children with disabilities and wanted a program for them as well. This program is called ABLE.
Frerichs says this program was intentionally made to be easy to operate, there is no need to contact the Treasurers office when making a transaction, it essentially works like a regular bank.
Frerichs appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show.
