Planning for All of Your Child's Needs
Caring for a child with special needs can be challenging, but we know from our work with parents in this role that it is a labor of love that often brings unexpected rewards. If you are the parent of a child with a physical or mental disability, you have no doubt invested time and energy in selecting and working with specialized providers to meet your child's medical, emotional and social needs. Now is the time to work with someone who can help you provide for their future financial needs.
There are several considerations to take into account when a special needs child is one of your heirs. Most importantly, you want to make sure that you preserve your child's eligibility for Medicaid, Supplemental Security Disability Income and other government benefits that can provide for the child's basic living needs. Our firm can help you form a special needs trust, and fund that trust, in a way that does not disqualify your child from receiving government assistance.
