Alameda County Special Needs Lawyer
Plan a Special Needs Trust for Your Loved One
A special needs trust is a particular kind of trust that provides for an individual with special needs who is unable to care for him or herself. This is achieved through a responsible mediator who distributes funds to the beneficiary according to the terms of the trust. This type of trust is utilized in scenarios involving minors, mentally disabled persons, and ensures that these individuals are cared for financially in the event of a parent or guardian's passing. Our Alameda County estate planning attorney at Randick O’Dea Tooliatos Vermont & Sargent has experience creating trusts of all types, including special needs trusts. Protecting your loved one is our priority, and we are ready to sit down with you and walk you through the planning process.
What are the advantages of a special needs trust?
- Allows your loved one to receive government benefits such as SSI, Medicaid, and other programs
- Provides an inheritance for your loved one
- Allows you to designate funds specifically for your disabled loved one
- The funds in your trust are protected from taxes and from creditors
Creating a special needs trust can give you peace of mind that your loved one will be cared for in your absence. Begin your planning today!
