Ensure Your Loved One's Continued Quality Of Life

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 provisions and laws Federally and in Kentucky 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.

How We Can Help You Help Your Loved One

We can help you set up a Stable Account or special needs trust which will protect their benefits while providing a more comfortable lifestyle. A special needs trust will give your loved one the quality of life you want them to have without giving up the benefits they desperately need.

A special needs provision in a will includes very specific language that will make sure your loved one is able to have what you would like them to have without compromising their government benefits. This is important for those who already have a disability and in the event one was to become disabled later. It’s imperative that this language is updated when necessary or your loved one could lose out on all they deserve.

We will help ensure that your loved one is protected by carefully crafting the appropriate documents and take the appropriate measures. You can rest assured that your loved one will be taken care of when you are no longer able to do so.
