Estate Planning For Families With Special Needs Children

22% of US population has a disability, 1 out of 5.  And that means approximately 20% of people have some sort of disability.  Estate planning is crucial for those who are disabled and receiving governmental benefits.  If a disabled child receives an inheritance, gift, lawsuit award or settlement, child support, alimony or a gift, this may disqualify the child from receiving governmental benefits.  With the appropriate planning, a disabled child can safely receive an inheritance, for example, while preserving these governmental benefits.
