You worry about the answer to that question, and we can help. Stop stressing about the unknown and make a plan. Find out how to put special needs trust and guardianship to work for you.
Key One: Build a Community of Caregivers
Formal appointment of guardians, trustee, therapists, case managers and the like is important, but so are the friends and family connections in the community.
Key Two: Protect Financial Supports
Protect and maximize Social security benefits, Medicaid, parental support, work income through the use of special needs trusts and ABLE accounts. Find out more.
Key Three: Create Transition Tools
A record of important information ranging from family history to medical information to daily routines and even parenting philosophy gives your future caretakers guidance in caring for your child when you are no longer able to do so.
Key Four: Complete Legal Documents that will ensure your plan works the way you intend.
Imagining your plan is only the first step. Next, prepare an estate plan and related documents with an attorney in a special needs law firm to ensure your intentions are carried out and are enforceable. You may also need a legally appointed guardian to protect your child, or other documents that give people the necessary authority to support your child’s needs.
