Independence Accounts (for people enrolled in MAPP) “An Independence Account is any new financial account set up through a financial institution, such as a bank or credit union, and registered with the local agency. Pre-existing retirement and pension accounts may also be used as Independence Accounts subject to similar contribution restrictions applicable for new accounts. By setting up Independence Accounts, participants can save earnings above the Medicaid Purchase Plan asset limit ($15,000) to buy independence-related items (i.e., a home or vehicle) or services.”
