Today, more and more families are faced with the continued care of an individual that has special needs. Whether it be an elderly parent or a child with learning disabilities, the reliance of these individuals on you for financial and direct care creates a significant level of family stress in the best of cases.
But what happens if the primary care/financial provider becomes disabled themselves, or worse yet, passes away? Do you have the financial and legal aspects in place to ensure the ongoing care of your loved ones with special needs?
Special care needs are not your only concern. Government funding and agency requirements require financial resources for these individuals be structured in very specific manners - or risk loosing all of their government benefits.
A trust, will or other provisions made without the specific guidance of an expert in the field can lead to the loss of estate and/or government benefits for the individual you are trying to protect.
Blevins Financial has a long history of working with families that have members with special needs. In fact our founder, Chad Blevins, serves as the Trustee for a Special Needs Trust for his sister Teresa, who has Autism. So we understand from both a very personal and practical level.
