Families with special needs children living in Long Beach need to think deeply about future needs and goals for their families. While it can be difficult to see beyond the everyday needs of food, school, and medical care, proper planning is desperately needed to ensure that these special needs children are properly cared for throughout their lives. This is especially important for those children living with physical or mental disabilities that compromise their abilities to care for themselves physically or to take care of their own finances. In many cases, parents must plan for possible future events without being able to see exactly what will be needed.
Estate Planning Provides Secure Futures for Long Beach Children
Long Beach Estate Planning helps ensure that these children and their parents are protected and provided for once the parents reach old age. Parents must have last wills and testaments in place that will tell others how they wish to be cared for in old age and how they want their assets dispersed. The wills should take into account any special needs that their children may have because many special needs children receive monetary governmental benefits that could be affected if they receive a large payment from their parents’ estates. If the government believes that these children are receiving plenty of money from another source, the government benefits, such as social security, could stop altogether.
