How do transfers work? ›

The next time you make a contribution or a withdrawal, the money will be distributed to help you reach your original target allocation.Let’s say your target allocation is 70% invested and 30% in cash. If you contribute $100 to start off the account, $70 will be invested. Overtime, that investment could grow to be $80. Now, your total balance is $110 and your allocations are 72% invested and 28% in cash, because an investment can grow quicker than cash.In this instance, money will be added to the cash option first to help it go back to 30%, and the rest of the money will be allocated based on your target allocation The same thing happens when you withdraw money. The goal is to maintain your original target allocation.

In the event of the death of a beneficiary, the funds from their ABLE account can be used by his or her estate to repay any outstanding eligible expenses or funeral and burial costs. Remaining funds will be transferred to the estate of the beneficiary.  Due to the passage of Senate Bill 1027 during the 2017 legislative session, Medicaid in Oregon is restricted from filing a claim for a payback on funds that were previously in an ABLE account of a deceased beneficiary. Medicaid Payback is governed at the federal level and, out of an abundance of caution, it is suggested to assume funds could still be recovered by Medicaid.
