Arizona Special Needs Trust Attorney
Special needs trusts are typically used to maintain eligibility for means tested government assistance programs such as Medicaid and SSI while at the same time creating a fund capable of supplementing the services that are not provided by government assistance.
It is important to note that different public assistance programs have varying rules governing eligibility. If a special needs trust is improperly designed and implemented, you risk losing access to essential government assistance. In addition, the medical requirements of your special needs loved one will change over time, as will your financial, medical and family situation. This is why it is so very important to seek counsel from an attorney who focuses on this area of the law.
