Learn How to Protect Your Special Needs Child or Loved One From Losing Government Benefits

With a wealth of experience practicing throughout Delaware, Karla Levinson, Attorney at Law has counseled many families with special needs. You can be comfortable talking to Karla and her staff about any concern, including how to ensure that a loved one with special needs receives their inheritance without losing government benefits.

Our Wilmington-based elder law firm focuses on providing special needs trusts and other disability planning solutions that protect our clients’ personal and financial interests. If you have a special-needs family member, our knowledge of asset protection and estate planning can make all the difference. Please contact us today to talk through your situation and determine if we can accomplish your goals.

Without conscious strategic planning, leaving money to a special-needs family member can be counterproductive. Your child or other dependent could be viewed by government agencies as “over-resourced” and the SSI, Medicaid or other benefits he or she currently receives could be terminated.

We have solutions to this dilemma. You may need a specific type of supplemental or special-needs trust, drafted in a way that excludes it as a resource for your heir. Your child or heir can continue receiving government benefits, but the money in your trust is available to “fill gaps” and meet needs the government benefits do not.
