Planning for the care of loved ones with special needs certainly tops the list of emotionally-charged topics. The mere idea wrenches the heart of any parent, if untimely death or disability strikes, who will care for your children? The peace of mind parents gain from a well-designed estate plan, more than compensates them for having to plan for the unthinkable.
How A Special Needs Trust Works
A Special Needs Trust allows a parent, grandparent or guardian to provide funds for a disabled child without disrupting the child�s eligibility for government aid. Setting one up is a fairly simple process.
Important points to remember while investigating the use of this estate planning tool are:
- Decide on an appropriate guardian for your child.
- Determine who would be a suitable trustee(s) to manage the trust's assets and supervise your child's finances.
- Outline instructions for your child's education, housing and other personal needs.
