S.C. Treasurer Curtis Loftis delivered the keynote remarks at the Fourth Annual Advocacy Day for Access and Independence Rally. It was held on the State House grounds, Wednesday morning.

Loftis discussed how the new South Carolina ABLE Savings Program provides individuals with disabilities the opportunity to open tax-advantaged savings accounts and creates a pathway to financial independence.

Advocacy Day for Access & Independence is presented by a consortium of advocates and organizations representing the state’s disability community. The goal of the event is to raise awareness about unnecessary and discriminatory barriers that deny people with disabilities equal access and opportunity.
