Careful Preparation Of Supplemental Needs Trusts/Special Needs Trusts
A supplemental needs trust, or special needs trust, can be created during the lifetime of the donor or as part of a will. Many different types of assets may be held in trust, including cash, real estate, stocks and certificates of deposit.
Many people use special needs trusts to enhance the quality of life of the disabled person, providing them with nonessential items that enhance their lives. Items that a special needs trust may provide for include:
- Recreational activities
- Medical treatment not provided by government programs
- Educational programs
- Luxury items
Without skilled legal guidance, your loved one could lose much-needed benefits from government assistance programs. I can help you explore the legal options available to you so you can help your disabled loved one enjoy the quality of life he or she deserves.
