Special Needs Planning Services

Our Bay City Lawyers Can Help You Set Up a Special Needs Trust

If you care for a loved one who has special needs, what will happen to them if you are no longer able to provide for their needs? While it may seem like a frightening question, our Bay City special needs planning attorneys want to assist you in understanding your ability and rights according to the law to continue to care for your loved one even if your circumstances change.

A Special Needs Trust is an excellent way to provide for and care for your loved one because it preserves his or her eligibility to receive government benefits at the same time that he or she receives additional assets or benefits from your estate. In this way, a Special Needs Trust supplements your loved one's government benefits.

  • Our Bay City special needs planning lawyers can help you to create a trust that allows for your loved one to:
  • Meet his or her special dietary needs.
  • Maintain his or her home and/or vehicle.
  • Access educational services.
  • Be able to attend medical check-ups.
  • Be able to go on vacations or other trips.
  • Have money for entertainment purposes.
  • Have money to purchase goods and services that he or she may desire‚Äč.

These are just a few of the many ways the funds in your trust can be used. Our attorneys can help you understand and think through even more benefits that you can allow for with your Special Needs Trust put in place.
