Ask an Attorney: Special Needs Trust

 

I have a family member/ friend with special needs. What can I do to protect their financial interests and ensure their future?

Ensuring loved ones are taken care of after reaching maturity is something many families must address. You want to ensure they are well taken care of, and still have their independence they need and deserve. There are many options, including special needs trusts, powers of attorney (financial and of property), and guardianships. Each option comes with pros and cons, and depending on their legal capacity and intellectual ability, our Annapolis attorneys want to make sure that everyone’s needs are addressed. We do not believe in a one plan fits all approach. Between now and August 1, 2018 HBD will donate 10% of fees collected when working with special needs clients to Gigi’s Playhouse of Annapolis.
