Caring for Disabled Family Members
Taking care of a disabled family member causes worry for parents and family.
Many families with disabled children worry endlessly about who will take care of their loved one when they are gone. In Pennsylvania, a Special Needs Trust allows an individual with disabilities to maintain assets to use throughout his or her life and remain eligible for Medical Assistance (MA), Supplemental Security Income (SSI), Mental Health/Intellectual Disability services, Medicaid Waiver programs and other public benefits. These types of trusts protect resources from immediate invasion by the state Medicaid agency.
If you or someone you know has worries about a disabled family member, come to the Kilgus Law Offices, LLC for compassionate help creating a Special Needs Trust.
