Estate Planning For Parents Of Special Needs Children

Parents of a developmentally-disabled or otherwise incapacitated child bear a life-long burden of care.  In fact, after their child turns 18 it gets harder.  As an adult, the child is not permitted to continue participating in many programs that were available during school-age years. And adults with special needs encounter many challenges not faced as children.

So, what happens to the child after parents have passed away, or can no longer continue to provide essential care and supervision?   Who, other than the parents, are both willing and able to step up and assume what could become for them, as well, a life-long burden?  Will the child have enough money to pay for his or her unique and often challenging medical, housing, social and vocational needs?

Join the lawyers at Vasiliadis Pappas Associates for a FREE one-hour webinar to explore answers and solutions to these questions.

What you will discover:

  • Essential legal tools for parents of special needs children
  • When and how to fund a “Supplemental Needs Trust”
  • How to set up and use an ABLE account
  • Why and when to join a Pooled Special Needs Trust
  • And more!
Tuesday, July 23, 10 AM – 11 AM
Wednesday, July 24, 3 PM – 4 PM
Presented by Stanley M. Vasiliadis, Esquire, CELA* Member, National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys and Academy of Special Needs Planners

There will be a Q&A so please bring your questions!
