Special Needs Planning

Families responsible for a child or adult with disabilities know the importance of making provisions for the future of their loved ones with special needs.

Proactive planning for loved ones with special needs means deciding now what will happen in the event of the untimely death or incapacity of those responsible for the special needs person’s care and financial needs.

In the case of parents or other family members who are responsible for the well-being of a special needs person, planning for how matters will be handled in the event the caregiver is not able to assist those with special needs is critical.

Establishing a Special Needs Trust to plan for a gift, inheritance or personal injury settlement for a special needs child or special needs adult, can protect the critical government benefits needed to assist the special needs person in maintaining the most independent and productive lifestyle possible.

Special Needs Trust

A Special Needs Trust is sometimes known as a Supplemental Needs Trust. This is a specific type of revocable or irrevocable trust established to allow a disabled beneficiary or a special needs person to enjoy the use and benefits of property or money while protecting the assets, property or money held in trust for his or her benefit, while at the same time making it possible for the disabled or special needs beneficiary to maintain eligibility for government benefits, such as SSI or Medicaid.

Estate Planning
