Special Needs Planning
(also known as Supplemental Needs Planning)
Parents of Special Needs children (whether minors or grown) want to make sure that their children are cared for after the parent dies. Parents who own significant assets want to find a way to leave them for the benefit of their children without disqualifying their child from governmental benefits. Other parents do not have significant assets, and are concerned that governmental benefits may not always be sufficient to provide a good quality of life for their disabled child. Special Needs Trusts provide a solution.
Don’t have an “estate” to leave for your disabled child? No problem!

3. Protect your disabled child throughout his or her life (even after your death!);
4. Qualify your disabled child for public assistance;
5. Augment the public assistance benefits for your child with other resources;
6. Appoint a family or professional “Care Manager” to make sure that your child receives proper resources to have a good quality of life.
