Incapacity, Disability And Special Needs Planning

If you or a family member struggles with disability and is concerned about maintaining eligibility to public benefit programs, it is important to discuss your needs with an experienced attorney.

Medical and long-term care needs for the incapacitated and disabled can become a crisis for loving, concerned relatives. A knowledgeable elder law attorney can put these concerns to rest, establishing legal documents that protect the well-being of a disabled or incapacitated person.

Kathryn Kaeble has more than 20 years of legal experience. She believes deeply in the opportunity to take care of tomorrow by planning today. Long-term care planning can ensure that needs are met and appropriate medical treatment is available.

A gift, no matter how well-intentioned, can render an individual ineligible for public assistance programs such as Medicaid and Social Security Disability. Legal instruments such as special needs trusts can allow you to provide for a loved one without causing him or her to lose much-needed assistance.

More Than 20 Years Of Experience In Special Needs Planning

As the primary source of payment for long-term care, Medicaid benefits provide basic support, but sometimes meet only the bare minimum of a recipient's needs. Kathryn Kaeble can recommend a choice of trusts that are more likely to provide adequate solutions to an incapacitated person's problems such as:

  • Special needs trusts
  • Medicare set-aside accounts
  • Income trusts
  • Pooled trusts
  • Third-party discretionary trusts

The special needs trust can be especially valuable as it provides benefits without sacrificing a person's eligibility for Medicaid. It can pay for dental and medical costs, the expense of annual checkups, education, special equipment, transportation, insurance and nutrition needs, and other quality-of-life benefits.

Regardless of the challenge that you or your family is facing currently or in the near future, Kathryn Kaeble's reputation for positive results proves that she can help those dealing with incapacity, disability and special needs issues.
