Special Needs Trusts/Estate Planning
Birth Injury Lawyers Explain Options
If your child was born with a severe birth injury, he or she will likely need extra care for the rest of his or her life. And if your child outlives you, you want to make sure that your child's needs and well-being are taken care of for life.
That's why many families choose to create a Special Needs Trust (SNT) for their child. Our experienced Atlanta attorneys at the Tyrone Law Firm, PC have extensive experience creating special needs trust throughout Georgia.
When you contact us, we can explain how these trusts work and other legal options for families with children with a birth injury. Simply schedule a free consultation at our Atlanta office today to learn more about this innovative way to insure your child's well-being for years to come.
Creating a Special Needs Trust serves several important purposes for families hoping to create a way to financially provide for a child with a birth injury for many years to come. The benefits include:
- Create a structured way to pay for expenses for your child for life. Expenses include:
- Personal care attendants
- Other medical expenses
- Educational expenses
- Physical rehabilitation
- Home furnishings
- Designate trustee to oversee trust.
- Set aside money to cover expenses not covered by government benefits.
- Schedule automatic payments from trust for certain expenses.
- Verify expenses for determining Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits.
