You will learn about the comprehensive steps, available resources, and necessary tools to help develop your personal agenda - a customized path that will keep you on track as you consider what’s right for your situation. Following the planning stages can help insure the type of care and quality of life for your loved one’s well-being today and tomorrow. The workshop will address critical issues such as protecting government benefit eligibility for Supplemental Security Income (SSI) and Medicaid, creating special needs trusts, the importance of a will, guardianship, financial strategies including ABLE accounts and preparing letters of intent.
