Why a Special Needs Trust?

Like all aspects of an estate plan, a special needs trust requires diligent analysis of your particular situation. When you contact us for a consultation, we will begin assessing your circumstances and the particular requirements. Some of the questions we may ask include:

  • What type of benefits does your loved one already receive? Medicaid? Supplemental Security Income? Another type of public benefit?
  • Does your loved one require long-term or short-term medical assistance?
  • In the event of your death or incapacitation, who will be the trustee of the special needs trust?
  • What specific needs does your loved one have?

Consider that your loved one may need extensive medical care, but they may also have other needs to help them live a happy and healthy life such as entertainment, transportation, exercise and other stimulation. At the Stewart Law Group, we will analyze your situation and explain the requirements, restrictions and opportunities a special needs trust may afford you and your family.

In many instances, a special needs trust is designed to offer long-term support to someone with a disability. That individual is typically already receiving some type of publicly available support. A special needs trust must be crafted in a way that does not jeopardize qualification for that public assistance.

While having a Phoenix special needs trust attorney is not required for the creation of a special needs trust—or any trust for that matter—the legal complexities and financial stakes can be daunting for someone not familiar with these intricacies.

By having the experienced legal team from the Stewart Law Group on your side, you will gain peace of mind. You will also enjoy the convenience of having a law firm that has a presence throughout Maricopa County. From Gilbert to Glendale, we have offices throughout the Valley and can serve you wherever you are in Arizona or beyond. Call the Stewart Law Group for assistance with any aspect of your special needs trust:

  • You are the settlor creating the special needs trust on behalf of your loved one
  • You need to amend an existing special needs trust
  • As the trustee named in a special needs trust, you have questions about your responsibilities
  • You are the beneficiary of a special needs trust and have concerns related to the trust’s provisions

The special needs trust can be very specific about the type of care you want your loved ones to receive. However, there are multiple restrictions that make certain types of support unavailable. If the special needs trust is not crafted in an appropriate manner, the risk of losing public support is very real. Long-term medical care, therapy and accommodations for someone with a disability can be extremely expensive. Contact the Stewart Law Group so that we can protect your loved one’s long-term care and create a special needs trust that allows them access to the support they need.

Call the Phoenix special needs attorneys at the Stewart Law Group and ensure your peace of mind.
