Kevne Sharpe

Kevne Sharpe, Certified Financial Planner™ and Chartered Special Needs Consultant® has over two decades of experience helping families plan for their financial success. With a specialty in Special Needs Planning, she will discuss the value of creating a Letter of Intent as well the importance of exploring qualification for public benefits whether they be SSI and Medicaid or SSDI and Medicare. She will walk you through the means-testing requirements to initially qualify for SSI and Medicaid and then discuss how to maintain qualification even if your child may earn a wage. You will learn how to calculate the amount needed from the family to supplement these government benefits to provide the quality of life you desire for your child’s lifetime. Funding options and strategies for this resource pool will be introduced including an in-depth look at the new Colorado ABLE account. Importantly, she will review how to integrate special needs planning strategies with the entire family’s comprehensive financial planning needs.


Mike Keglovits, ABLE and Special Programs Manager from the State of Colorado, will be speaking about how ColoradoABLE provides populations of people with disabilities the ability to save without losing their federal benefits such as Medicaid and SSI.
