If you have a loved one with special needs, what happens when you can no longer care for them? If you do have an estate, a trust, or inheritance, you can rest assured: you do have options for special needs estate planning.
The question is, what option should you put in place in the event that you are unable to provide for your loved one? An estate planning attorney can help you sort through those decisions.
The point of special needs estate planning is to set up lifetime money management for the benefit of a person with special needs. This also protects that person’s eligibility for public benefits if that ever does become an option. More importantly, you ensure access to a pool of funds to provide for a high quality of life for years to come.
Estate planning is a notoriously complex area of law. When choosing an attorney, make sure you select with one years of dedicated experience in this specific niche. Someone who’s spent years working within your state’s estate planning framework can answer your questions and simplify the entire process.
