Resources

In Cooperation with the MO Division of Developmental Disabilities, Camden Co. Developmental Disability Resources provides Support Coordination services for Camden Co. persons with developmental disabilities. Through the Person Centered Planning process, our Support Coordination staff work to meet the needs and preferences of persons with developmental disabilities in a manner which takes into consideration the unique circumstances and values of the individual. Guided by the MO Quality Outcomes, the Person Centered Plan acts as a blueprint for achieving the individualized goals, objectives, and life outcomes identified by those we serve.

All persons served must have a developmental disability and reside in Camden County MO. The MO Division of Developmental Disabilities/Rolla Regional Office determines if an individual qualifies as having a developmental disability.

MO ABLE Accounts

MO ABLE PowerPoint Presentation

A STABLE Account is an investment account available to eligible individuals with disabilities. STABLE Accounts are made possible by the federal Achieving a Better Life Experience (“ABLE”) Act. STABLE Accounts allow individuals with disabilities to save and invest money without losing eligibility for certain public benefits programs, like Medicaid or SSI. Earnings in your STABLE Account are not subject to federal income tax, so long as you spend them on “Qualified Disability Expenses.”

STABLE Accounts have some similar features to normal bank accounts, but they are not checking or savings accounts. STABLE Accounts are investment accounts, similar to 529 college savings accounts or 401(k) retirement accounts. When you deposit money into your STABLE Account, your money will be invested in different options that you choose. While you can still withdraw and spend your money whenever you need it, a STABLE Account also allows you to grow your money and to save long-term for disability expenses.

MO ABLE is Missouri's ABLE plan. The Missouri Treasurer’s Office has partnered with STABLE Accounts and the Ohio Treasurer’s Office to offer this program to Missourians with disabilities. Although STABLE Accounts are available nationwide, MO ABLE is only available to Missouri residents. Through MO ABLE, Missourians are able to open STABLE Accounts at discounted rates.
