Why a Special Needs Plan is Needed

Although estate planning is important, this becomes a critical matter when it involves a loved one with a disability. Inheritances over $2,000 for special needs children actually go directly to the government, as it diminishes a child’s eligibility for government care and may not even contribute to the betterment of their life. Some parents make the mistake of leaving the inheritance to family members or others who may potentially take care of their child should something happen to them in the future. The best solution to ensure the inheritance is used to improve the quality of life for your loved one with a disability is through a supplemental care trust, also known as a special needs trust.

Giro & Associates can provide you with options on how you can maximize your inheritance for your loved one through a special needs trust. With a focus on helping people with disabilities, our special needs trust lawyers can advise you on various aspects including:

  • Trust administration and trustee representation
  • Specialized estate planning
  • Special education advocacy
  • Guardianships and conservatorships
  • Public benefits
  • Employment and residential issues
