Special Needs Planning in New York
At Makofsky Valente Law Group, P.C., we help clients with special needs planning that meets the unique needs of disabled family members.
Special needs planning is important for those caring for disabled children or adults with special needs. This type of planning ensures that you will have a strategy to take care of dependent family members when you are no longer able to personally provide the care your loved ones need.
Special Needs Trusts
A special needs trust (also called a supplemental needs trust) is one of the most important tools available for special needs planning. A special needs trust can provide additional financial support for disabled persons receiving entitlement benefits without deeming the disabled person ineligible for government benefits. The trustee of the special needs trust will manage the finances of the trust and distribute trust assets to the beneficiary.
There are numerous government benefit programs designed to help support disabled individuals. We can help you identify and apply for available benefits from these programs. To learn more about applying to government programs, view our Medicaid planning and applications page.
Makofsky Valente Law Group, P.C., and its predecessor firms have nearly three decades of experience in the practice of special needs and Elder Law. Contact us online or at (516) 228-6522 to schedule an appointment to discuss special needs planning today.
