Webinar Series: Special Needs Planning
“Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.” ~Alan Lakein
Part I: Understanding Special Needs Accounts
Planning for the financial security of our children and youth with special health care needs can be daunting. When should we start? What options are best? Will our choices impact our child’s ability to qualify for government assistance?
Part II: Guardianship & Conservatorship
Wednesday, May 29
12:30 – 1:30 PM
Long before our children with special health care needs reach adulthood many of us worry for their future. Will they need someone to make important decisions for them? Who will handle the financial aspects of living if they cannot? Estate Planning Attorney, Scott Stevens, brings us another informative webinar on special needs planning. Scott, who is a father to a youth with a disability, will shed light on guardianship and conservatorship. This webinar is for families with children of all ages who have special health care needs.
