What Is Special Needs Planning?
The main purpose of special needs planning is to protect those with disabilities from losing their benefits and to ensure that they are properly cared for. There will come a time when you will not be able to care for your child or loved one and you will want to plan accordingly. Some parents or caretakers choose to leave the decisions up to the government but this can often result in your loved one not having sufficient resources. Whether you are a parent or a caretaker, we can take the proper steps.
We can help with all aspects of special needs planning, including:
- Establishing special needs trusts
- Creating revocable living trusts
- Drafting durable powers of attorney
- Creating supplemental needs trusts
Importance of Establishing a Special Needs Trust
Special needs trusts and supplemental trusts are useful tools that can be used to include assets for physical rehabilitation, personal care caretakers, medical expenses, and other needs. Many parents and caretakers do not realize that the assets they leave behind, if not properly structured, may leave the individual ineligible for benefits. Fortunately, our experience and dedication to our clients can serve your family's needs. Our Fairfield County special needs planning attorneys can help you find solutions that fit your unique needs.
