Long-Term Planning For A Disability
We provide legal solutions to disabled and injured people who need to plan for their future needs. At Chayet & Danzo, LLC, we provide thoughtful legal advice as we address your concerns. If you are disabled, injured, or have a medical condition that will require care in the future, we can help.
A Special Needs Trust
We will discuss your options and provide legal guidance as we advise you on the benefits and consequences of each choice. Planning before your condition leaves you completely disabled allows you time to think about your needs and plan appropriately for your future. You may have options which include establishing the following:
- Disability Trust
- Income Trust
- Medicare Set Aside Trust (MSA)
- Third Party Discretionary Trust
- Pooled Trust
If you have been diagnosed with a disabling condition, such as Multiple Sclerosis or Parkinson’s Disease, it is best to begin comprehensive long-term care planning while you are still able to care for yourself. At Chayet & Danzo, LLC, we help clients understand their long-term care options, apply for disability benefits, and ensure that their care choices are implemented. We can advise you on how to obtain care in your home or long-term care that does not jeopardize other public or private benefits. We also provide counsel to trustees of special needs trusts to ensure that the trusts are administered properly from funding to distribution, including seeking approval of the trust entity by the governing state or federal agency.
We work hard to protect your assets and your livelihood. If you or someone you love is interested in learning more about planning for disability through a special needs trust or other mechanism, contact a member of our firm.
