Planning for Families With a Child With Special Needs
Show Notes

It’s important to identify and understand what assets are going to pass directly to a child with special needs and if those assets will adversely affect his or her ability to qualify for certain government benefits. The sooner we can get a handle on things, the better off our child with special needs will be in the future. 

In this recording of a virtual seminar originally presented in June 2023, Attorney Megan Ingram and Brian S. Young, CFP®, ChSNC®, give a rundown of some of the things that families with a child with special needs should consider, and also answer the following questions and more: 

- Who will act as guardian or custodian of my child after my life?
- How can Life Insurance provide a benefit to an estate plan?
- Why you should review any existing plan periodically to make sure it’s still in good order & current with the law
- Funding a Special Needs Trust – what assets should you consider?
- Key differences between a 1st Party Special Needs Trust, 3rd Party Supplemental Needs Trust & a Pooled Trust
- What is an ABLE account & Summary of Our Wishes?
- Recent law updates, tax implications & so much more!
