Many of us have a family member or loved one with a disability or special needs situation. Whether it is a spouse with early stages of dementia, a child or grandchild with a lifelong disability, or a family member who is simply unable to support him or herself, proper planning is essential.
At WhiteheadFink Elder Law, LLC, we understand that having a family member with a disability or limitations can be tremendously stressful. From a legal standpoint, there are steps that can be taken to plan for the disabled person's future which can provide some peace of mind.
Special Needs Trusts are tremendously important when the disabled person receives or may receive government benefits in the future. These trusts can allow the disabled person to remain on his or her government benefits while also having the safety net of a trust for his or her benefit.
Please give us a call to discuss how we can help safeguard your loved one's government benefits and financial security.
