Step 3: Contribute IEA funds to your ABLE TN account
Once ABLE TN has set up your account to receive IEA funds, you may begin contributing.
If your check is less than $10,000, you must endorse the check you received from the Department of Education and mail it with your completed IEA Contribution form to ABLE TN, P.O. Box 55599, Boston, MA 02205. To endorse a Third-Party check made payable to you, the Parent/Guardian, for deposit into the IEA-02 portion of the ABLE TN account, please write the following on the back of the check:
- For Deposit only
- Pay to the order of ABLE TN
- Write the IEA Identification number which ends in -02
- Write the full name of the student
- Your signature as it is made payable to you, the parent
If your check is over $10,000, you must deposit the check into your own bank account, then write a personal check payable to “ABLE TN,” and mail it with your completed IEA Contribution form to the same address listed above.
NOTE: IEA Program contributions cannot be accepted without the IEA funds form. In order to ensure IEA funds are being used for educational expenses, IEA contributions cannot be deposited in the online account portal.
