Many people with disabilities rely on government benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid. To qualify for these benefits, there are certain financial limitations. Leaving behind money or property to a loved one with a disability may disqualify them from receiving the benefits they rely on. A Supplemental Needs Trust allows you to set aside money to provide for the future of an individual with special needs without affecting their eligibility to receive public benefits. Attorney Sandy is a compassionate and experienced lawyer who can help you establish a trust that meets your family’s unique needs. Contact our firm today to receive a free consultation and learn more about our services. We assist clients in Queens County, NY and the surrounding areas.
We can help you assess your needs and goals to determine what type of trust best suits your situation. Besides an inheritance, a trust can be used to hold funds acquired in a personal injury settlement or any other sum of money that would disqualify that person from receiving government benefits.
