For those who are a parent or guardian of someone with special needs, detailed planning is essential for every aspect of their life. For someone who needs special care, it is essential that there are plans in place to provide for their welfare in the case of their caretaker not being able to perform their duties.
Preparing for special needs in your will and/or trust is crucial to providing for the special needs after your death. Certain provisions will provide for health care decisions, living arrangements, training or education, and financial concerns. Also, it is important to not leave someone in need of special care too many assets or they risk being removed from governmental assistance programs such as supplemental security income and Medicaid.
It is important to provide the right balance when providing for someone with special needs. The Law Office of Glenn A. Deig can help you find that balance to provide for those in need.
