Special Needs Law

Here are some the complexities involved:

  • Did you know that it is possible to disqualify someone from government benefits (AHCSS, Supplemental Security Income, Medicare, etc.) if you leave too much money to them? So how can you pass on assets to someone with special needs without disqualifying them?
  • Who will you name as a guardian for the person with special needs? How do you select that person?
  • Who will you choose to service as a trustee for those assets? How can you be sure the trustee will do what you want for the person with special needs?
