Providing for a Person With Special Needs

Abstract Articles

An irrevocable special-needs trust is the best way to provide for a disabled or mentally retarded adult or child who needs to retain government benefits. Done properly, such a trust can ensure that the beneficiary will have the things that enrich his or her life now and after you are gone and still qualify for essential government benefits such as Social Security and health care.
