Protection of Settlement Proceeds & Inheritance

Consult with our office to coordinate a plan to achieve your goals and promote independence with proper and timely planning. The laws for government assistance allow people to place their assets in a special needs trust in order to maintain their government benefits. The special needs trust assets can be used to provide quality of care and quality of life beyond what government benefits may include. The laws also permit people who receive government benefits to own certain assets regardless of value.
