How Special-Needs Trusts Provide For Special-Needs Children And Others
As your loved one gets older, you will walk through many milestones. If this person is your child, you may need to undergo guardianship procedures, and there is a good chance that your loved one’s medical needs will require him or her to be on public benefits.
Each of these benchmarks comes with its own specific needs. A well-structured special-needs trust can provide for your special-needs family member and be a crucial resource when medical or living expenses may otherwise be overwhelming.
A special-needs trust can:
- Provide for unexpected medical expenses
- Cover the costs of in-home care
- Set up monthly expenses, including daily needs and living expenses
- Cover your loved one’s financial needs after you pass away
- Help maintain your loved one’s public benefits
You may not always be there to take care of your loved one. A trust can last in perpetuity. To find out how a special-needs trust can fit your specific situation, speak to one of our attorneys today.
