Special Needs Planning/Special Needs Inheritance

Another important issue for many clients is planning for the care of a disabled child loved one with mental health issues or substance abuse problems. These individuals might lack the capacity to care for themselves or they might misuse funds they receive an inheritance outright rather than in a trust.

For beneficiaries who have these types of issues, supplemental and special needs trusts can be an important tool, allowing grandparents, parents and other family members to preserve trust principal while still providing for the care of a grandchild, child or other loved one with special needs. Trust assets can be managed and distributed for the care, education or medical treatment of the trust beneficiary. In instances where the beneficiary qualifies for governmental benefits, a supplemental needs trust will prevent the beneficiary from losing benefits and will preserve trust assets to supplement the beneficiary's quality of life. These types of trusts help bring peace of mind to concerned parents by ensuring that their children will be cared for even after parents or other family caregivers have passed away.
