Special Needs Planning

What is Special Needs Planning?

Many parents know that special needs trusts play a critical role in planning for the financial future of their child with disabilities. If a person with disabilities has too much money in his or her own name, he or she will become ineligible for important government benefits, like SSI and Medicaid. A special needs trust can help to avoid this problem because assets that are held in a properly drafted special needs trust are not considered when determining eligibility for these and other “financial need-based” government benefits. Getting help from Special Needs Planning Attorneys in Austin, TX is advised in such a case. Talk to the Austin Special Needs Planning Lawyers at Willi Law Firm, P.C. by calling (512) 288-3200 for a Free Consultation.

Every estate plan that we create includes planning for someone who may have special needs at the time of inheritance. No one can foresee everything that may happen in the future.  While you may not have any beneficiaries with special needs today, they may suffer injuries in the future for which they may require governmental benefits.

It is important for families to take care of this sooner rather than later. Now, more than ever, states are mandating that individuals must be eligible for Medicaid and other government assistance benefits as a condition of the receipt of services. Families should not wait until services are needed to start planning. To do so will likely result in substantial delays in the receipt of services or in the worst case scenario, families may find that they are not able to receive vital services at all. Get help from a Special Needs Planning Attorney in Texas by calling (512) 288-3200. Our Travis County Special Needs Planning Lawyers will go over your case in detail and then come up with a plan.
