Specialized Planning Requirements

Elder law encompasses specialized planning mechanisms such as special-needs trusts designed to protect your loved one from being disqualified for government benefits such as Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income and enhance quality of life by having an additional source of funds available.

A special-needs trust can be created as a part of your estate plan. For example, if you have a special-needs child or care for an adult who is mentally and/or physically impaired and that person receives government benefits, a trust can be created to pay for an enhanced quality of life that government benefits alone do not provide.
