When making plans for the future, it’s crucial to work with an attorney who has a comprehensive awareness of all aspects of estate planning. There are many intricate federal and state provisions and laws regarding special needs planning that only a firm exclusively committed to elder law understands. At the Elder Law Practice of Scott E. Collins, PLLC, our managing attorney, founder and owner, has devoted his life to serving people and dedicated his career to helping families throughout Madison County.
Special needs planning helps take care of child or an adult with serious disabilities. These individuals qualify for government benefits, but those benefits usually only cover necessities such as food and shelter. When a person wants to provide a better quality of life for their loved one by giving them additional financial support, the individual could then lose his or her government benefits. Special Needs persons can get trapped in the web of regulations and narrow options.
