Michigan Special Needs Planning Firm Serving Clients in Bloomfield Hills, Rochester, Detroit and Throughout Michigan

As the parent of a loved one with special needs, you are undoubtedly concerned about obtaining the assistance your loved one needs now and ensuring he or she will be well cared for when you are no longer able to provide adequate care yourself. We work with parents, family members, trustees, and caregivers to help manage the legal, personal, medical, and financial affairs of people with special needs.

This involves gaining a thorough understanding of your priorities for the care of your loved one, helping you obtain that care, explaining all of the options available to you, and analyzing your financial situation to determine the specific benefits available for your loved one. We will design and implement a customized plan to meet your loved one’s needs today and in the future.

Special Needs Trusts in Michigan

Special needs trusts can be used to create a fund to augment services not provided by government assistance programs like Medicaid and Supplemental Security Income (SSI), while at the same time maintaining eligibility for these vital programs. A special needs trust can include funds for travel, entertainment, education, wheelchair-accessible transportation, advanced dental and medical care, and more. In short, a special needs trust can make money available for services to maximize the quality of life for your loved one with special needs.

You should know that every government assistance program has its own set of rules. These rules can be extremely complicated. If a special needs trust is improperly designed or implemented, it can jeopardize your loved one’s eligibility for assistance from Medicaid and SSI. Our attorneys have extensive experience in this specialized area of the law. Contact us today to schedule a personal meeting with one of our Bloomfield Hills, Macomb, or Rochester special needs attorneys.
