Blake Dowlin, Ohio Treasurer’s Office
Are you concerned about a loved one’s ability to support her or himself when you are no longer able to help support them financially? Are you trying to save for your future but are concerned it will impact your qualification for Medicaid or SSI? STABLE Accounts, created by the Ohio Treasurer’s Office, are made possible through the Achieving a Better Life Experience (ABLE) Act. These accounts make it possible for individuals with disabilities to save and invest without losing government benefits such as Medicaid or SSI. Mr. Blake Dowlin will explain the benefits of the program, how to access enrollment, and answer questions you may have. Mr. Dowlin has been working for the Ohio Treasurer’s Office since May 2017 and travels throughout SW Ohio. Previously, he has worked in a variety of roles including as a Recovery Manager in the Specialized Recovery Services program for the Council on Aging, working with individuals with Severe and Persistent Mental-Illness (SPMI).
