Special Needs Planning
At Littman Krooks, our attorneys will help you plan for your loved one with special needs. Special needs planning and special education advocacy are two of our core practice areas. We know that caring for a person with special needs involves a deep emotional connection, and we provide a number of specially developed services to help enhance the person’s quality of life. If you became unable to provide these services or if you pass away without planning for their continuation, your loved one’s quality of life may suffer.
Our attorneys can help
Our attorneys use a person-centered approach to assist you with all manner of special needs planning issues, which are an important part of estate planning.
We can establish comprehensive care plans organized so that money for your loved one with special needs will not be at risk from estate taxes or the long-term care costs of caregivers. We can also assist with applying for SSI benefits for a person with disabilities and applying and qualifying for Medicaid.
We can also help you provide for a person with special needs in your will, apply for guardianship and set up a special needs trust or supplemental needs trust.
We stand ready to teach you about the estate planning options available to you and to assist your family with long-term care planning for your loved ones with special needs. Get in touch with us anytime to meet with an expert at Littman Krooks LLP.
