Are you providing for a child, parent, or other loved one who has mental or physical disabilities? If so, it is important to make sure that they will be properly cared for after you are gone or after you are no longer capable of caring for them. At Leger Law Group, LLC, our attorney assists clients in the Baton Rouge area with their special needs plan. We can help you develop a comprehensive plan that clearly lays out in detail your wishes for where the loved one will live, who will be responsible for their care, and more.
Many individuals with special needs receive benefits under the Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid programs. While extremely beneficial to recipients, these programs provide only the basic necessities, and you may wish to leave additional assets to your loved one after you are gone.
However, if you wish to leave money or property to a loved one with special needs, it is very important to do so in the proper manner, as it could jeopardize their ability to continue receiving these SSI and Medicaid benefits. One of the best ways to leave these assets while avoiding losing eligibility is through a special needs trust, which is also known as a supplemental needs trust.
Let our Baton Rouge estate planning lawyer help you create a detailed and legally sound special needs trust. We make it a priority to ensure you have peace of mind knowing that your loved one will have everything they need and beyond long after you have gone.
