Individuals with serious disabilities often qualify for government benefits like Supplemental Security Income, Medicaid, Division of Developmental Disabilities residential placements and day programs, and housing aid. However, estate plans and personal injury recoveries usually prove disqualifying unless they include special needs trusts. Special needs trusts permit gifts, devises, and litigation recoveries to benefit individuals with serious disabilities without jeopardizing key government aid. In addition to hurting your clients, you may risk malpractice and professional responsibility liability unless you have a functional understanding of these specialized trusts.
Register today to hear an experienced panel of New Jersey experts provide you with the tactics you need to know to effectively represent special needs clients. Through a series of practical “no fluff” discussions, the panel will provide you with planning tips and items you need to be sure to watch for when drafting these trusts.
