An important part of special needs panning is to protect your loved one’s access to public benefits. This is most often associated with the establishment of a supplemental needs trust. Our lawyers are able to assist our clients in drawing up a plan that protects assets while ensuring their loved ones with disabilities will not lose important public benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Medicaid (MassHealth), vocational rehabilitation, department of transitional assistance, (DTA) and subsidized housing (section 8).

Acting Now Can Protect Your Family From Having To Make Painful Decisions

Decisions made in crisis situations often lead to regrets, as they are made without the benefit of thoughtful deliberation. People with disabilities often need additional long term services and supports to address their chronic health conditions as well as their desire to live as independently as possible. These long term services and supports include assistance with activities of daily living, such as getting dressed, taking medication, preparing meals, and managing money.

Our firm can help you draft legal documents that detail how financial and health care decisions should be handled if your loved one is unable to make decisions for themselves or need additional care services.
