You have a child with special needs and want to ensure that your child is protected and not in danger of losing invaluable government benefits.
Parents of children with special needs know how invaluable many government services are to the care and welfare of their children. Therefore, it is imperative that parents of children with special needs engage in planning to ensure that their children will be cared for and their assets protected for their children in the event of the parents’ death. By establishing a Supplemental Needs Trust for your child or another person with special needs or having a Last Will and Testament that provides for the creation of a Supplemental Needs Trust, you may ensure that your assets will be held for the benefit of that beneficiary without interfering with the government benefits to which they may be entitled.
