Estate Planning for Families With Special Needs

This is a free webinar hosted by the Personal Finance and Military Caregiving concentration areas of the Military Families Learning Network.

Planning for the future is something everyone should devote substantial time and thought to but especially families with special needs. This session will explore the importance of this type of planning and decision-making. We will explore estate planning considerations across the life cycle for families with special needs. We will also discuss documents such as powers of attorney and trusts, including a revocable living trust and a special needs trust. Lastly, we will look at considerations for needs-based public benefits such as Supplemental Security Income (SSI) or Medicaid.
