What Is Special Needs Estate Planning?
Physical and mental limitations partially covered or not covered by private or employer-based health insurance may force special needs individuals to rely on government assistance, such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Medi-Cal, California’s version of Medicaid.
Because eligibility for many of these assistance programs is income-based or asset-limited, special needs individuals who receive an inheritance, gift of money, or proceeds from a personal injury lawsuit may become ineligible for government assistance.
Ensuring Financial Security for Your Loved Ones
Special needs estate planning is a crucial step in securing the future of your loved ones with disabilities. It involves creating a comprehensive plan that addresses their unique financial, medical, and emotional needs, even when you are no longer able to provide care.
