Special Needs Trusts in Chattanooga

You Can Rely on Our Estate Planning Attorney

If you wish to leave money or property to a loved one who has a disability, it is imperative to secure a special needs trust in your will. By setting up a special needs trust, it can ensure your loved one will receive appointed care, Supplemental Security Income (SSI), as well as Medicaid benefits. You will also appoint a trustee of the trust fund who will appropriately spend the money on your loved one’s needs and wants.

The Benefits of Special Needs Trusts

To secure a special needs trust in your will means you will leave your disabled loved one a trust fund, as opposed to appointing money directly to them, which could jeopardize their eligibility to obtain SSI and Medicaid benefits. Instead of the trustee giving money directly to your loved one, they will be allowed to spend money on your loved one’s behalf.

Common expenses used from a special needs trust include:

  • Personal care
  • Medical expenses
  • Home furnishing
  • Vacations
  • Education
  • Recreational activities
