Special Needs Trusts
Attorneys Serving Central Florida
Those unable to work due to a physical or mental disability may need to rely on government help for housing, food, and other basic needs. Whether temporarily disabled for a short or long period of time, permanently incapacitated, or those with life-long developmental problems, this need for help may apply. Some needs can be met by government programs like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), but they are only available to low-income people.
A special needs trust allows a person or others to contribute assets to supplement public assistance without losing their eligibility. Our elder law attorneys have extensive experience setting up special needs trusts, to protect federal income limits and Medicaid eligibility. We have office locations in Orlando, Lake Nona, Tavares, DeLand, and Port Orange, Florida. Reach out to us today to learn more about special needs trusts.
