Special Needs & Disability Planning

While government benefit programs such as SSI and Medicaid offer substantial health care coverage, the available cash benefits are minimal. Therefore, the Firm develops, designs and drafts Special Needs Trust, thus preserving the disabled person’s eligibility to receive governmental benefits while providing additional funds to add to the quality of his or her life. We assist families of disabled individuals in planning their estates and/or structuring monetary judgments or settlements so as not to jeopardize eligibility to receive government benefits. A properly designed and administered Special Needs Trust will serve to supplement public benefits such as SSI and Medicaid without jeopardizing eligibility. We help you design a plan to protect such public benefits of your disabled child, so that you can protect them for their lifetime.
