What Is A Special Needs Trust?
If you leave your disabled loved one a lump sum of money, it may impact their government assistance, such as Medicaid or subsidized housing. A special needs trust is a unique estate planning tool that lets people give a gift to their loved ones with disabilities without interrupting their benefits. Even if your loved one does not currently receive assistance from the government, a special needs trust will ensure that your gift does not impact future benefits.
Our knowledgeable attorneys can design an individualized special needs trust that protects your loved one’s benefits. With this trust and our thorough knowledge of Florida estate law, you can rest easy knowing that your loved one is safe.
