Special Needs Trusts
Appropriate planning for disabled individuals will preserve eligibility for benefits such as Supplemental Security Income, Social Security Disability Income, Medicare and Medicaid. Many parents and family members inadvertently jeopardize benefits with unsuitable estate plans. At other times, benefits are at risk because of personal injury awards or lump sum payments from Social Security. The attorneys at Orson and Brusini will protect your benefits with their expertise in this very important area. In addition, the properly structured special needs trust will enhance the beneficiary’s quality of life and personal satisfaction on a day to day basis.
