"Estate Planning for Individuals w/Disabilities & Their Families"
Presenter: Attorney Brian Pack
Thinking about the issue of “what happens to those I love when I am no longer able to see to their needs” is a very emotional and challenging matter to address. This session will provide participants the opportunity to actually put into words their hopes and dreams for their family member or themselves for the future, under-stand the roles of the person with a disability’s money, the family’s money and the government’s money in putting a plan in place, and the legal mechanisms that need to be put into place to safeguard their plan. The differences between guardianship, Durable Powers of Attorney, Advance Directives, Wills, Trusts and Special Needs Trusts will be explained.
