Special Needs Planning in League City
Texas Estate Planning Firm Focused on Your Needs
Planning for the future is vital when you have a dependent with special needs. Distributing assets after death can have a huge impact on the individual’s quality of life, including any benefits they receive from government assistance programs. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that a will is all you need. A complete estate plan, including a trust that legally provides for a special needs individual is important to fully protect their best interests.
What Is a Special Needs Trust?
Much like a guardian provision in a revocable or irrevocable trust, planning for the care of a special needs individual allows a guardian, such as a surviving parent, grandparent, or other trusted family member or friend to provide financial assistance without disrupting government assistance.
Special needs trusts can thus address all of the following and more:
- Appointing a legal guardian
- Appointing a trustee or trustees to hold and distributed money
- Instructing important aspects of the individual’s health, such as their education, where they will live, and other personal needs
