Plan To Protect Your Family Member With Special Needs
Anyone in your family who lives with disabilities naturally requires special focus and concern. While you may help care for the person in practical ways over a lifetime, you also realize that if something happens to you, your loved one will need legal and financial protections. Special needs planning is not only about preparing for future deaths in the family of parents, grandparents or a spouse. It is also about taking advantage of all available legal avenues to care for that special person during your lives together.
For example, does your loved one need a modified van for transportation? Is he or she preparing to move out from under your roof, perhaps with government assistance? How can your family make the greatest use of all available sources of support, including government programs, family help, and other income streams that might otherwise affect eligibility for that particular public assistance? Discuss these and other vital questions with an experienced estate and special needs planning attorney at Frank, Frank & Scherr, LLC.
