Properly planning for the care of a loved one with a disability during your lifetime and after your death requires distinct and careful consideration to ensure that your loved one’s eligibility for certain public benefit programs, such as Supplemental Security Income and Medicaid, is not jeopardized. One essential component of special needs planning is including a special needs trust to hold assets intended for your loved one. While there are many other options that can be implemented, a special needs trust allows your assets to be used for your loved one to supplement their care while preserving their public benefits.
