Providing For A Child With Special Needs
When you are planning your estate, it is important to make sure that a will or trust addresses your specific needs and those of your family. This is especially important if you have a child who has special needs. The estate planning attorneys at Connors and Sullivan Attorneys at Law, PLLC, can help you establish an estate plan that provides for your child’s well-being after you pass.
We understand how seriously you take the needs of your child and how emotional this issue can be. We take the time to listen and learn about your child and his or her specific needs and life goals. Our compassionate estate planning attorneys will help you establish a trust that is comprehensive and effective.
What Is A Special Needs Trust?
A special needs trust is a type of estate planning vehicle that helps parents provide financially for a child while still preserving his or her eligibility for government benefits. Assets in a special needs trust can be used to pay for housing and for needs that Medicaid does not cover such as necessary therapies, wheelchairs, handicapped-accessible vehicles and other services that may benefit your child.
Provisions included in a trust may address guardianship issues as well as a letter of intent in which you outline important details about your child’s care and prosperity. Our goal is to ensure that your child is able to live a fulfilling life after you are gone.
