Fort Myers Special Needs Planning Attorney

You’ve always been there for your disabled child or spouse. But life’s unpredictable twists raise concerns. What if?

Our mission is to remove those ‘ifs’ and ensure a stable financial base with continued government support for you and your child.

How Can I Support My Special Needs Child Without Jeopardizing Their Benefits?

When you leave assets directly to a child with special needs, it could easily jeopardize their eligibility for programs like Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI). These benefits have strict asset limits, and going beyond can cost your child their crucial assistance.

In estate planning, the top priority for parents with special needs loved ones is ensuring their long-term care.

The aim? Equip them with robust financial security without risking essential government support like Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI).

Join us at an upcoming Estate Planning event to get started today.

What is Included in Special Needs Planning?

Special needs planning involves making a legal plan that an individual with disabilities remains cared for throughout their life, especially after their primary caregivers or parents are no longer around.

Here are some legal tools commonly used in special needs planning:

These tools, when used properly, can create a comprehensive plan that addresses both the immediate and future needs of someone with disabilities.

Navigating Government Benefits is Exhausting

The daily care you provide your disabled loved one is a testament to your dedication. But the challenges of understanding government benefits can be testing. And you have concerns:

  • Who will ensure their best when I can’t?
  • What happens when I’m not around?

Through Special Needs Planning, we’ll lay a foundation for their lifetime security while offering you the peace of mind you so rightly deserve.
