If you’re a parent with a special needs child, thinking about the future can be extremely stressful. Not so you only need to plan for your own retirement needs, you have to worry about the continuing care of your child.
Recently, Forbes Advisor came out with a great overview of how Special Needs Trusts work – https://www.forbes.com/advisor/life-insurance/special-needs-trusts/
I highly recommend reviewing this article and speaking to your estate attorney about your options.
Part of the process of setting up this type of trust is funding it.
In a previous blog post, I spoke about the various ways to fund a special needs trust – https://www.perfectlyimperfectfamilies.com/funding-a-special-needs-trust/
Partnering with you and your estate attorney, I can help you make sure that your child will get the care they need once you are no longer able to do it yourself. I have a special needs daughter myself. I know how many anxious, sleepless nights you’re dealing with. Let me give you one less thing to worry about.
