Understanding Disability Planning
Disability Planning for Families with Special Needs Children
If you have a disabled or special needs child in Wooster, Akron, Cleveland, or elsewhere in northern Ohio, you may need help understanding, applying for, and maintaining disability benefits for your child. As a dedicated lawyer, I can help you understand the purpose and structure of all of the various benefit programs that may be available to your child and help you create a disability plan that will ensure the safety and welfare of your child into the future. Because I focus my practice exclusively on estate planning for families with disabled children, I am well-versed in all the legal challenges and solutions you face and have an in-depth understanding of this field, including the many types of disability benefits.
Public Assistance Benefit Programs
As a Wooster disability planning attorney, I can assist you in understanding the various disability options, how each option works, and how to effectively use them for your disabled child. The types of disability benefit programs include Medicaid, Social Security disability, supplemental Social Security income, VA benefits, long-term health care insurance, and disability plans provided by your job or insurance plans.
After carefully reviewing the specific circumstances of your family and your special needs child, I can help you apply for the programs to which your child is entitled to receive benefits. I can also help you set up a special needs trust for your disabled child so that you can pass along your property or assets to him or her without jeopardizing his or her eligibility for these government benefits in the future.
Disability planning involves understanding all of the county, state, federal, and other benefit programs available and organizing them to ensure that your disabled child's future well-being and security is established and maintained. I encourage you to contact me to discuss this important planning task as soon as possible.
