Estate Planning For Special Needs In California

Estate planning lets you decide what should happen to your assets (or your “estate”) when you are gone. Although estate planning is always a little daunting, it’s especially challenging if you’re worried about how to protect the interests of a special needs person.   

Estate Planning For A Special Needs Child

When you have a special needs child, you might worry about who will care for them if you’re not around. You might also have concerns about the best way to provide for them financially, or what type of assets to leave them in your Will. The Law Offices of Alice A. Salvo will explain the options open to your family.  

Estate Planning For Special Needs Adults

If any of your adult children have special needs, it’s crucial that you have an estate plan in place to protect them financially upon your death. This is especially true if an adult does not have the capacity to manage their own affairs. Our special needs estate planning attorneys understand the concerns and worries you may have. We’ll consider your estate and your long-term goals, and we’ll help you fully understand the options available so you can make informed choices.

Estate Planning And Special Needs Trusts

A special needs trust is a powerful legal tool that can help protect the financial interests of a child with special needs. One of the main benefits of a special needs trust is that it allows parents or caregivers to access money now to care for a child with special needs, without affecting the child’s eligibility for Medicaid and other government benefits in the future.
