Enable Savings Plan Launches Checking Investment Option

First Program to Offer Account Owners the Ability to Pay for Daily
Expenses by Check or Debit Card

LINCOLN, Neb.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Enable Savings Plan—one of the first national ABLE programs for
individuals with disabilities—has launched a Checking Investment Option,
Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg and First National Bank of Omaha
announced today. This new Investment Option enhances the ability of
individuals with disabilities to save and manage their resources.

The new Checking Option is the first of its kind, allowing account
owners nationwide to pay for qualified disability expenses by check or
debit card. It is an interest-bearing, FDIC-insured Investment Option
and one of five investment options offered by the Enable Savings Plan.

“It has been rewarding to watch the Enable Savings Plan grow since it
launched last June. Opening the Enable Checking Option is a critical
step forward as it allows account owners to contribute and withdraw
money seamlessly for everyday expenses and to earn interest in their
accounts,” said Treasurer Stenberg. “We are happy to provide a safe and
easy checking option that will allow individuals with disabilities to
benefit from the tax and program advantages of an Enable account without
the inconvenience of unnecessary bureaucracy.”

“The Enable Savings Plan was developed to help individuals with
disabilities achieve financial independence. With the added Checking
Option, account owners can both save for future expenses and pay for
daily expenses all in one account,” said Deborah Goodkin, Managing
Director, Savings Plans, First National Bank of Omaha. “Our investors
have jobs, apartments, and pets to take care of. It is important for
them to have these convenient banking capabilities so they can lead
their everyday lives.”

Account owners and family members are able to make contributions through
a variety of methods, including mailing a check to the Enable Savings
Plan, authorizing an electronic transfer from a personal bank account
into an Enable Checking Option, and systematically using payroll
deduction direct deposit or the Automatic Investment Plan.

Withdrawals can be done by writing a check, using a debit card, logging
into a secure Enable Savings Plan account online, sending a withdrawal
form downloaded from EnableSavings.com,
or calling the Enable Savings Plan customer service line at
1-844-ENABLE4 (1-844-362-2534). Account owners can view their
transactions, track their balances, and see statements online at EnableSavings.com.

Launched in June 2016, the Enable Savings Plan was one of the first
national ABLE savings plans offered. Enable provides individuals with
disabilities an opportunity to save for their future in tax-free savings
accounts and pay for everyday expenses. People with disabilities and
their families can save as much as $100,000 without impacting Social
Security benefits.
