Today, April 2nd, is Autism Awareness Day. If you have a child or relative with autism or other special needs, and they receive government benefits, you need to plan carefully for their inheritance. Inheritance of money or other property (including real estate) can be treated as increased income, and jeopardize your the individual’s status as a recipient of benefits from the government. There is a solution, however: The Geller Law Group can help you set up a special needs trust. These help to ensure that when you leave items of value to your children and loved ones with special needs, it will not disqualify them from receiving their much-needed public assistance.
If this sounds like your situation and you live in MD/DC/VA/NC, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by 12:00PM on Friday, April 4, we will offer you a 10% discount on a special needs trust. Please mention this post in your email!
