Special Needs Planning and Veterans Benefits

Special Needs Planning

Disability and other special needs often limit a child’s capacity to become independent and financially secure as an adult, which is why planning for your special needs child’s future is so important. This is particularly true today, with government entitlements on the decline and the costs of care on the rise. At the Sydney Law Firm, we can help ease your financial burdens now, by making the best use of government programs currently available, and use strategies such as special needs trusts to protect your special needs child after you are gone. Considering the fact that accident or illness can strike a loved one at any time, resulting in disability at any age, every good Estate Plan should include standby phrasing for such contingencies.

Veterans Benefits

Many individuals and families who are eligible for Veterans Benefits do not take advantage of them. The fact is, millions of wartime veterans and their spouses may be eligible for special monthly pension benefits and assistance in paying for long-term care costs, including some little known and underutilized programs. If you or someone you love is a veteran, we can determine whether you qualify for benefits and guide you through the complicated and often frustrating process of getting those benefits.
