Planning for a Child With Special Needs

Ensuring a Future of Quality Care and Financial Security for Your Special Needs Child

Caring for a child with special needs is time consuming and often exhausting. Getting through today is enough of a challenge without having to worry about tomorrow. But taking the time to plan for your child’s future can ensure they continue to receive quality care and the services they need throughout their life, even after their 18th birthday or after you’re gone.

Weatherby & Associates, PC Helps Families Achieve their Goals for their Children with Special Needs

The planning needs of families with special needs children differ from other families. Instead of saving for a rainy day or providing an inheritance that will supplement their adult children’s income, families of special needs children must plan for the high costs of long-term care and make sure their child has a source of funds they can rely on. Objectives that Weatherby & Associates, PC helps families achieve include:

  • Qualifying special needs children for Medicaid
  • Protecting assets and income from medical care expenses and Medicaid reimbursement
  • Ensuring the ability to pay for services the child needs that aren’t paid for by Medicaid
  • Identifying suitable guardians in the event of the parents’ incapacity or death
  • Making sure future guardians understand what parents intend for their child in regards to health care and financial security
  • Securing the best care and services possible
  • Obtaining guardianship rights to continue making health, life and financial decisions for the child after their 18th birthday
  • Ensuring the parents’ assets will pass to and benefit their child after their death
  • Making certain the child’s future is handled according to the parents’ wishes, and not those of a court, social worker or other third party
