Special Needs Trusts and the ABLE Act

Financial planning for families with special needs is difficult under the best of circumstances. As parents of individuals with disabilities, we know that every one of our decisions has long-lasting ramifications that can have a huge impact on the quality of our children’s lives in the future. Our choices today may mean the difference between our children living successfully, with financial independence, and watching them languish on wait lists, fighting to access benefits, services, living options, etc.

This session will provide parents with an overview of special needs trusts and the ABLE Act, two tools that are crucial for preserving your disabled child's assets.
