The Benefits of Special Needs Trusts
The primary benefit of a special needs trust is to provide care and services for a loved one with a disability without jeopardizing eligibility for other programs. A special needs trust can provide specific detail about how you want the funds distributed, such as to cover certain treatments, physical therapy, future surgeries, in-house care — or for housing arrangements or vacations. If you cannot pay for all of your loved one’s medical care, we can set up your special needs trust to provide extra comforts without threatening eligibility for Medicaid or other benefits programs.
During your lifetime, you can add assets to your loved one’s trust to ensure their current and future needs are covered. As we continue to advise you, we will take care to account for own your retirement planning needs, as well. We are committed to helping you plan properly so your own financial stability is not threatened as you fund the special need trust.
We will take all the time necessary to understand your loved one’s condition and situation, your goals, and your family’s unique needs. We have the insight to help you develop a special needs trust or supplemental needs trust that meets those goals.
