Building a Special Needs Plan that Works for Your Loved One
Anyone who cares for someone with special needs should have a plan in place for their loved one’s future. This unique wrinkle in estate planning is critical because it can help you rest assured that the person with special needs you care for will be financially secure and cared for when you pass away.
Crucial parts of a special needs plan can include the following:
- Special needs trust: Forming this kind of trust will allow someone with special needs to receive assets and property while preserving their eligibility to benefit from public assistance programs. You can establish and fund this trust in your lifetime, or have the creation of one outlined in your last will and testament.
- Guardianship or conservatorship: Guardianship can be established for a special minor with special needs, such as a child or grandchild, while a conservatorship can be transferred to someone you trust if an adult child or other adult relative requires special needs.
- Powers of attorney: Powers of attorney can be granted to someone you trust who will look after a loved one with special needs’ financial and/or medical life.
- Medi-Cal Benefits: This medical insurance program is reserved to help people with developmental disabilities receive, but its application process can be complicated. Our special needs planning attorneys in Roseville is able to help your family through this complex process.
