Get your eligibility questions answered.

 

​Given your loved one’s circumstances, what would provide the right foundation for their independence, while ensuring their security and enabling parents to assist with important decisions? Will your child be able to work? Will they require full-time care? Where will they live? What sort of social life are they likely to want? 

 

​Our attorney with over 25 years of experience with individuals with disabilities can explain how a Special Needs Trust can be used to pay expenses without jeopardizing eligibility for important means-tested government programs. 

 

​We can discuss funding sources—insurance, investments, bequests—and the best way to accumulate the necessary assets to provide for the entire lifetime of your child. We can also help families think through the “circle of support” that will be available to your child when parents can no longer act as caregivers. 

Nearly 54 Million Americans cope with special needs and the rising associated expenses.

The lifetime cost for an individual with autism is estimated to be $3.2 million.

· 69% of families are very concerned about being able to provide lifetime care for their dependents with special needs.

 

We are dedicated to making a difference with every family we work with!

FAQ When You Are Responsible for Someone with Special Needs

Why, I don’t have enough money to justify a special needs trust? Any money that accidentally ends up in your person with special need’s hands WILL jeopardize their state and federal benefits. Do you want them to lose benefits?

It can be expensive to get good legal help, but the cost of preparing a special needs trust for your person is much less than it will cost to save his or her benefits if you fail to plan properly now.

Why, I’ve named my child/sibling as beneficiary on my life insurance/retirement account/annuity? If your child/sibling is named their loss of benefits will occur immediately on your death. This might be the worst plan of all.

Why do I need a lawyer, can’t I do this online someplace? This is not a simple Will and mistakes on this can cause terrible harm to the loved one you leave behind. We listen to your needs and desires, and we give you our best advice about what you should do. We have specialized expertise that we use to assist you and we want to help!
