Notwithstanding any other provision of state law that requires consideration of the
financial circumstances of an applicant for assistance or a benefit provided under
that law, the agency making the determination of eligibility for the assistance or
benefit may not consider the amount in the applicant's ABLE account, including earnings
on that amount, and any distribution for qualified disability expenses in determining
the applicant's eligibility to receive and the amount of the assistance or benefit
with respect to the period during which the individual maintains the ABLE account.
