Special Needs Trusts

Protecting fragile futures.

Who is going to take care of my loved one with special needs when I pass away, and how much is it going to cost? For any parent of a child with a disability, it is likely the single most worrisome financial planning question of all.

You want to ensure that the physical and financial care of a loved one with special needs is provided for, while carefully considering the willingness and ability of other family members to assume physical, as well as financial caregiving, obligations after you are gone..
