It is estimated that over 40 million Americans have disabilities, one in seven. The incidence of disabilities among children is increasing at a faster rate than only a few years ago. Whether this increase is due to better diagnosis or some other factors is the subject of much debate. What is not debatable, however, is that these families need our assistance. Health care expenses for people with disabilities are increasing at an alarming rate. In addition, government healthcare benefits are more difficult to access and insurance companies are getting tougher in their willingness to pay claims. In this climate, planning for individuals with disabilities takes on increased importance in our estate planning practice. In this webinar, Mr. Krooks will review the issues which you must consider when working with a family who has an individual with special needs. By incorporating practical solutions to these concerns into your estate planning practice, you will be able to improve the quality of life of the person with special needs.
Attendees will learn:
