Welcome, Squirmy and Grubs.
CalABLE is proud to partner with influencers Shane Burcaw and Hannah Aylward.
Shane has a disability. Hannah does not. To change how the world sees them as a couple, they started posting videos in 2018 about their “inter-abled” relationship as Squirmy and Grubs—their pet names for one another. Since their marriage in September 2020, their YouTube channel surpassed over 788,000 subscribers.
Shane and Hannah recently discovered CalABLE and opened an account. They were so excited about the benefits of the program that they shared the news with their YouTube audienceClick "good news with their audience" to see a YouTube video of Shane and Hannah sharing about their experience with CalABLE.. Partnering with CalABLE, Squirmy and Grubs plan to spread the word that a CalABLE account empowers people with disabilities to achieve a better life experience.
CalABLE is a savings and investment plan offered by the state of California to individuals with a disability. Eligible individuals may open a CalABLE account that provides them with a tax-advantaged account, easy access to their money using the CalABLE Visa® Prepaid Card,* and confidence their savings, up to $100,000, won't affect their eligibility for programs like SSI and Medi-Cal.
