Securing Your Special Needs Trusts

When you are faced with a disabling condition, injury or illness, you need to know that you will be able to take care of your family and your financial obligations. The uncertainty that comes with not being able to work can involve a tremendous amount of stress.

At The Elder and Disability Law Firm, APC, we know how to work with clients to address their SSI issues effectively. As experienced estate planning and benefits attorneys, our team has the background to comprehensively deal with any issue that arises. We have represented clients through all levels of navigating Social Security and continue to provide excellent counsel on all related matters.

Keeping Your Social Security Benefits

What will happen when you are no longer able to give the care to your loved one? You can leave property to your loved one, of course, but doing so without careful planning will almost certainly jeopardize his or her ability to receive benefits under the Supplemental Security Income and Medi-Cal programs. If the right legal arrangements are not made by you, government benefits won’t be available until all of the inheritance is used up.

A Special Needs Trust will allow the government benefits to be protected while the inheritance can still be used to supplement the care costs and needs of your loved one. We will explain how special needs trust works. It takes work, but once it is all done, you will have the peace of mind knowing that your loved one’s benefits will be protected.
