Special Needs Trust

Leaving assets in your will to a loved one with a disability may do more harm than good.  Often, individuals with disabilities receive subsidies for living expenses and healthcare.  These subsidies can be in jeopardy if the disabled individual has too much income or too many resources (savings, investments, property, inheritance, etc.).  If you would like to help someone you love with a disability, the best way to do so is through the creation of a Special Needs Trust.  Setting up a Special Needs Trust is not expensive or complicated, and it allows for you to ensure a loved one with a disability is cared for without threatening his or her eligibility for assistance with living expenses and healthcare
