What to Include in a Special Needs Plan
When clients come to us to assist with their special need planning, we generally recommend including the following key elements:
- Draft an estate plan that covers the specific needs of the special needs individual so they have quality care if you unexpectedly pass away.
- Establish a special needs or supplemental needs trust. Having a trust set up for the special needs individual will help them avoid losing eligibility for Social Security Income or Medicaid due to income requirements.
- Include your disabled or special needs loved one in your will. Make sure you specify who is responsible for caring for them after your death.
- Come up with a strategy to pursue state and federal benefits that might be an option for your loved one.
- Discuss Able accounts and how they might fit with your estate plan for your loved one.
- Discuss guardianship and powers of attorney.
