If you are caring for loved ones with special needs, you should be aware of special planning considerations. Without the proper planning, you may not be adequately protecting their ongoing needs and interests in the event you are no longer around.
A lack of planning may disqualify the individual from receiving continued government assistance, such as leaving him or her an inheritance that causes this person to exceed their asset limits. Additionally, you may not be taking full advantage of benefits programs available to them.
