Supplemental Needs Trusts: Planning Ahead for Your Disabled Child
If you are the parent of a special needs child or adult, chances are that you currently have services in place to create a structured and safe environment for them to live a productive life.
But, what if something happens to you? How do you know that your child will be cared for after you're gone?
A supplemental needs trust, commonly referred to as a special needs trust, can provide that the inheritance you leave for your child can be used without disqualifying your child from receiving certain governmental benefits and assistance.
